Terra Nova follows Royal Navy officer Robert Scott’s race against Norwegian Roald Amundsen to be the first to reach the South Pole. Drawn from the journals and letters found on the frozen body of Captain Scott, this Obie-winning play reveals how the men courageously came face to face with their inevitable death as they march toward their goal.

Best Local Productions:

Terra Nova (Fort Worth Community Arts Center)

This execution of the retelling of the tragic story of the Terra Nova expedition made the atmosphere in the theatre thick with rich, true emotion. These actors brought the team of the Terra Nova back to life, and the audience was right there in the cold Antarctic desert with them. Every sense of homesickness, anxiety, fear, loss, isolation was translated so realistically. This show truly took a story that we all know the ending ton and keep it riveting, gut-wrenching, and fresh.

The Fort Worth Community Arts, in association with Dramatists Play Service, was proud to announce the first production of The Arts Center Presents Waiting For Godot. The production was led by Production Manager Jason Leyva and a talented troupe of performers, including Actors Equity Association (AEA) members. 

Two bedraggled and weary companions, Vladimir and Estragon, wait for an unspecified person named Godot beneath a lone and nearly lifeless tree. Debating philosophical, remembering past events and meeting and meeting again, strangers as they wait. And wait. And wait.

Waiting For Godot was performed at the Hardy and Betty Sanders Theatre at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center and ran Thursday through Saturday, March 21–31 at 8 p.m., with Sunday performances taking place at 2 p.m.

Best Play

Waiting for Godot (Fort Worth Community Arts Center)

When done well, Beckett is searing in its intensity, and this production was stellar. The performances were perfection, as well as memorable.
