Lawrence Howard created "Polar Opposites: Amundsen, Scott, and the Race for the Pole" as the 3rd installment in Portland Story Theater's popular Armchair Adventurer series. Set against the backdrop of Britain's crumbling empire and Norway's recent independence from Sweden, Polar Opposites is an epic tale of ambition and folly, of heroism and tragedy; a tale of courage and sacrifice and suffering. It's the story of a glorious achievement overshadowed by an even more glorious failure.
