RESOLUTION – a play by Rob Johnston presented by PACT Productions in our very own Great Cabin, aboard the HM Bark Endeavour, 7.30pm Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August.
RESOLUTION follows the remarkable achievements of Captain James Cook, the son of a farm labourer, through a long and bitter feud with the British Admiralty’s Alexander Dalrymple, map maker to the Royal Navy and celebrated Edinburgh gentleman.
Dalrymple believed it was he, and not the working class upstart Cook, who was destined to be the greatest sea-going explorer the British Empire had ever seen.
“History is written by the victorious” Napoleon Bonaparte once said.
RESOLUTION tells of the history not written by the victorious, nor dismissed by the conquered, but rather a history seen as the greatest prize a man can possess – but a prize no two men can ever share.
Two men. Two dreams. One prize….
