Experience Aidan Dooley’s award winning one-man play as it tells the heroic tale of Tom Crean (1877 – 1938), the intrepid, Irish Antarctic explorer and the only man to serve with Scott and Shackleton on three famous expeditions: – Discovery, (1901 – 1904);  Terra Nova (1910 – 1913); and Endurance (1914 - 1916).     
Written and performed by Dooley the story, a testament of human fortitude against all the elements of Antarctica, is brought to life in this dramatic solo performance.  Crean’s thirty-six 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”. Crean was subsequently awarded the Albert Medal for his bravery.
