August 10 @ 12:19 pm

Intrepid Antarctic explorer and one of Ireland’s unsung heroes, Tom Crean is brought to life in this dramatic and humorous solo performance by Aidan Dooley. Hear the riveting true stories of Crean’s Antarctic explorations as one of the few men to survive three famous expeditions: Discovery (1901 – 1904); Terra Nova (1910 – 1913); and Endurance (1914 – 1916). A story of human fortitude, Tom Crean’s 36 mile, solitary trek to base camp during the Terra Nova expedition to rescue his comrades has been described by Antarctic historians as “the finest feat of individual heroism from the entire age of exploration”.
