In an alternate future where the weather of the world has been permanently altered, the son of a famed polar explorer sets out in search of his father, who disappeared while looking for a lost city buried under the snow. But Wes Singleton believes his father is still alive—somewhere above the timberline. The play is adapted from the exquisitely painted novel.
The production is directed by Keli Crawford-Truckey.
