Tom Crean Antarctic Explorer

Join us to hear the riveting true stories of Tom Crean’s explorations. Crean was one of the few men to serve with both Robert Scott and Ernest  Shackleton. He survived the three famous expeditions: Discovery, Terra Nova and Endurance.
This is a story of a testament of human fortitude against all the elements of Antarctic. This is a grippingly vivid, surprisingly funny account of sheer heroism in the face of impossible odds. The show gives new life to the memory of one of Ireland’s unsung heroes.

We observe Scott and Shackleton through the eyes of a man who served both and outlived both. Tom Crean, the intrepid Antarctic Explorer is one of Ireland’s unsung heroes. His exploits are skilfully brought to life in this dramatic and humorous solo performance written and performed by Aidan Dooley.

It also garnered a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2006. Tom Crean – Antarctic Explorer is a grippingly vivid, surprisingly funny account of sheer heroism in the face of impossible odds.
