Tom Crean show

ONE of the top shows tour­ing at the mo­ment is ‘Tom Crean, An­tar­tic Ex­plorer’ - writ­ten and per­formed by Ai­dan Doo­ley.

Tom Crean, the in­trepid Antarc­tic ex­plorer and one of Ire­land’s un­sung heroes, is brought to life in this dra­matic and hu­mor­ous solo per­for­mance by Ai­dan.

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”. He was sub­se­quently awarded the Al­bert Medal for his brav­ery.

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

It’s at the TLT on Oc­to­ber 22 with tick­ets, €12-€20.
