Play On Words Theatre presents

Tom Crean Antarctic Explorer
by Aidan Dooley

This dramatic and humorous solo performance, suitable for families, brings to vivid life the intrepid Antarctic explorer and one of Ireland’s unsung heroes, Tom Crean (1877-1938), through riveting true stories.

One of the few men to serve with both Scott and Shackleton and survive 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 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”.

‘… charming, funny, perfectly pitched…’ The Scotsman

‘…This magnetic revelation of a fascinating character, simply compels a standing ovation…’ The Irish Times
