TOM CREAN – ANTARTIC EXPLORER
An unforgettable night of theatre
This compelling one man show has been playing to capacity audiences for the last ten years. Awarded Best Solo Show at its premiere at the 2003 New York International Festival and a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2006, Tom Crean – Antarctic Explorer is a grippingly vivid, surprisingly funny account of sheer heroism in the face of impossible odds.
Aidan Dooley returns to the Everyman to tell the tale of Kerryman Tom Crean who survived three of the most famous polar expeditions. Scott and Shackleton through the eyes of a man who served both, and outlived both. Tom Crean, the intrepid Antarctic Explorer and one of Ireland’s unsung heroes, is skilfully brought to life in this dramatic and humorous solo performance written and performed by Aidan Dooley
