About this show

German playwright Manfred Karge wrote The Conquest of the South Pole in 1986, three years before the fall of the Berlin Wall. The play concerns the soul-eroding problems of prolonged unemployment - a dilemma afflicting many today in 2007. The play follows four men in a small town who stave off the despair of joblessness by re-enacting Amundsen's expedition to the South Pole in an attic.
