Tom Crean – Antarctic Explorer
dramatic and humorous solo performance
by Aidan Dooley
Friday 27 & Saturday 28 April 2018 @ 19:30 both evenings
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.
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 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 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”.
Organised by the Irish Club of Luxembourg (ICL) and the Luxembourg branch of Comhaltas Ceolteoiri Eireann, with the support of the Embassy of Ireland in Luxembourg.
Tickets €20/person from www.luxembourg-ticket.lu from 15 March.
