Discover courage, adventure, and mystery: 'Shack' awaits!
Antarctica. A blizzard. Nine school kids are stranded in a shack, on the bottom of the world, with a sinister force circling outside…
Our young explorers, in the ghostly footsteps of Ernest Shackleton, question their place in the natural and social order of the world as the limits of their courage are pushed into uncharted waters. A hypothermic flurry of comedy and thriller, Shack explores the territory between teen anxiety and teen invincibility. Young people are being called on to lead like never before, but how do they learn to step up, when sometimes just existing is hard enough?!
Shack by George Kemp (Winner of the 2020 Junior ATYP Foundation Commission) is back to explore the power of nature and the nature of power in this adventure story for the Greta Thunberg generation.
