Play On Words Theatre presents Tom Crean – Antarctic Explorer Written and Performed by Aidan Dooley Sunday 8th November 2015 to Monday 9th November 2015 8pm

Tom Crean, the intrepid Antarctic explorer and one of Ireland's unsung heroes returns to The Playhouse in this dramatic and humorous solo performance.

Hear the riveting true stories of Crean's Antarctic explorations as one of the few men to serve with both Scott and Shackleton and survive the three famous expeditions: Discovery, (1901 - 1904); Terra Nova (1910 - 1913); and Endurance (1914 - 1916).

Crean's story is a testament of human fortitude against all the elements of the Antarctic, his 36 mile, solitary trek to base camp during the Terra Nova expedition to rescue his comrades Teddy Evans and William Lashly has been described by Antarctic historians as "the finest feat of individual heroism from the entire age of exploration".

This multi-award winning show has now played critically acclaimed sell-out performances throughout Ireland, USA, Australia, Europe and the UK.


Tickets £12.50
