SPECIAL EVENT: Split Knuckle's Endurance

Fairbanks Concert Associations Logo

Co-sponsored by Theatre UAF and the Fairbanks Concert Association

Split Knuckle is a critically acclaimed company that creates dynamic, physical, visually striking theatre from simple materials.

Trapped in Antarctica with no hope of rescue, the great British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton kept 27 men alive for two years in the most inhospitable climate on earth.

Ninety-five years later, in the worst economic meltdown since the Great Depression, Hartford insurance man Walter Spivey, struggling to justify his recent promotion and save his employees jobs, relives Shackleton's story.

Can one of the greatest leaders in human history inspire him to conquer the corporate world?

Friday-Saturday, November 21-22 at 8 p.m.

Tickets available via the FCA website: www.fairbanksconcert.org

The Ashgirl, by Timberlake Wertenbaker

In a big old house Ashgirl lives huddled deep in the protection of an ashy hearth. With her mother dead, and her father away, she lives with her stepmother and two stepsisters. When the invitation to the ball arrives from the prince, Ashgirl finds the strength to go with the help of her friends, some of whom come from unexpected places.

This retelling of the classic Cinderella fairy tale is “like a mix of C.S. Lewis and Sondheim’s Into the Woods: an eclectic fairy tale anthology.” (The Guardian, London)
