WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Strawdog's 2010-2011 season concludes with an adaptation of German playwright Manfred Karge's 1986 comedy The Conquest of the South Pole. The play follows Braukmann and his friends as they fight off the crushing desperation of long-term unemployment by re-enacting Roald Amundsen's first successful trek to the South Pole, while never leaving Braukmann's attic. As some of the men slowly regain their lives on the other side of the dole, others keep journeying on into the new Antarctica.
