Nenagh Arts Centre Presents Tom Crean

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 Dooley. 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.

Tom Crean – Thursday 19th October, 8pm, Tickets €18.00 / €16.00 (plus €1 Booking Fee)
