'A Father for My Son'

In February 2006 Jenny performed the part of Kathleen Scott, Captain Scott's widow, in her play "A Father for My Son" by Jenny Coverack and Robert Edwards. She was on board the cruise ship the KAPITAN KHLEBNIKOV, a powerful, conventionally powered polar class ice breaker converted for passengers. Her performance took place in the Ross Sea region, close to Scott's Hut on Cape Evans. This is probably the furthest south that a professional stage play has ever been performed. The ship's itinerary and photographs follow.
