Great Scott!


Great Scott! imagines that a group of conspiracy theorists are trying to persuade the world that Captain Scott was not killed by the cold during his Antarctic mission as history would have us believe, but sacrificed himself saving the world from an alien invasion. The conspiracy theorists act out the story as they believe it happened, and that's why I wanted the Great Scott artwork to have a bit of a home-made feel (Scott's surprised expression was made by crudely cutting out and dropping down the bottom half of his face, rather than using "Proper Photoshop Skills"). I was also influenced by the action adventure movie posters of the 1950s, which inspire the characters in the play.
