This October, experience the story of intrepid Antarctic explorer and one of Ireland’s unsung heroes Tom Crean, brought to life on the stage of the Gaiety Theatre in this dramatic and humorous production. Aidan Dooley has won critical acclaim and multiple awards for this solo show which has played sell-out performances across the USA, Australia, Europe and UK.
 
Tickets for this remarkable production go on sale tomorrow Wednesday 25 April at 9am.
 
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.
 
Hear the riveting true stories of Crean’s Antarctic explorations as one of the few men to serve with bothScott and Shackleton and survive the three famous expeditions: Discovery, (1901 – 1904); Terra Nova (1910 – 1913); and Endurance (1914 - 1916).
