Spectacular stage effects of C17 & Antarctica in prose, poetry and sound art. Anne McElvoy, Kat Austen, Michael Bravo, Jean McNeil and Tom Charlton wrap up warm.

Anne McElvoy wraps up warm for an account of life in Antarctica through prose and poetry, how the idea of the North Pole has fired the human imagination for centuries and an artist's interpretation of the Arctic through sound. Also how the spectacular stage effects that thrill panto audiences have their roots in the 17th century and the court of James I and VI - New Generation Thinker Thomas Charlton looks at theatre history.
