Shackleton, The Untold Story

Bob Hicks of Oregon Arts Watch calls Lawrence Howard "one of the city’s most engaging raconteurs." Dennis Sparks, theater reviewer, called Shackleton, The Untold Story "storytelling theater at its best." Audience members are raving about it: "One of Lawrence Howard's best performances! I didn't think it was possible to be a bigger fan of Lawrence, but after this show, I am!" (Laura McCormack) and "I was on the edge of my seat through the whole story. Lawrence Howard is mesmerizing." (Joyce O'Halloran)

Shackleton, The Untold Story is scheduled to play at The Pavilion in Cascade Locks on March 26, 2016, and at the Cascades Theater in Bend on April 16, 2016.

He weaves together facts and the moments from real-life into passionate and poignant stories that expose profound shared memories of the human heart, making connections that are not soon forgotten. Lawrence is a meticulous researcher who creates and tells stories about real people that he admires and who inspire him; people like Ernest Shackleton, Douglas Mawson, and even his dad, Marty Howard, the original Armchair Adventurer.

Lawrence shares stories about his own life, his family, and his adventures in the world. Stories that strike a chord, deep inside. These are stories about those things in life that we all know; sometimes we want to forget, but often Lawrence's stories remind us of who we are and what matters. When you hear Lawrence's stories, you'll feel like you know him. Sometimes you even feel like you know yourself better.
