Working with the Providence Athenaeum, the Wonder Show  has developed a new written work inspired from original materials within the Athenaeum’s Travel and Exploration collection. This performance tells the story of one of the earliest arctic explorations led by Captain William Parry.  This performance uses direct text from shipboard  publications including, Captain Parry’s journals, The North Georgia Gazette– a shipboard newspaper, as well as playbills from an impromptu performance space, The Arctic Theatre Royal,  in which this performance takes its name from.
