Play on Words Theatre host Tom Crean - Antarctic Explorer at the Simon Ryan Theatre on Saturday, February 25th )8pm).

Tom Crean (1877-1938) the intrepid Antarctic explorer and one of Ireland’s unsung heroes is brought to life in this dramatic and humorous solo performance by Aidan Dooley.

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”.
