One of the most talked about theatre works of recent times is to come to the Ivy Leaf Art Centre here in Castleisland on Friday, February 21at 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.
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”.
“We’re expecting a full house as this is one of the most famous pieces of work in Ireland today and it has sold out at venues all over the world,” said Ivy Leaf director, Jerome Stack.
