Tom Crean for Bertie's 300

Thursday 14 September
Sackville Theatre   6.30pm
Tickets  £15, £10 concessions   Book tickets

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'.

Aiden and Miriam Dooley together with Sevenoaks School have kindly offered to donate a performance of the excellent Tom Crean to help raise funds for Bertie Petty via http://www.treeofhope.org.uk/bertie-petty/.
