“A wonderfully vivid, powerfully physical, often blackly comic world premiere… features ingenious direction by Robert Kauzlaric, prize-worthy design, and a cast of 10 actors who instantly make you believe they could have been among Shackleton’s original recruits.” —Chicago Sun-Times

“A superbly well told tale of survival… Absolutely phenomenal set-design… Engaging performances… The White Road is an incredible tale of strength.” —Chicago Stage Standard
“In 1914, British explorer Ernest Shackleton hauled himself and 27 men toward the Antarctic in a disastrous third attempt to reach the South Pole… Tarjan fleshes them out, giving us a motley, almost vulnerable bunch we can get behind. Indeed, her drama becomes a play celebrating unabashed male love, something too rarely seen on Chicago stages.” —Chicago Reader
