Follow Captain Cook on his fateful final journey as told by 6 actors channelling diarists Charles and Fanny Burney, Boswell, Elizabeth Cook and Omai the Tahitian. This new theatre script uses chronological diary accounts of encounters with Captain Cook in 1775 and 1776. A very accessible piece with pockets of humour.
