Set during The Golden Age of Antarctic Exploration (1901-1915), discover the riveting true stories of Sir Ernest Shackleton and Robert Scott through the eyes of Tom Crean, who was at the center of three of the most daring and challenging expeditions to the great white continent. This includes surviving for months trapped on floating ice after their ship was crushed by ice and sank. This story is a testament of human fortitude against all the elements of the Antarctic.


Written and performed by Edinburgh Fringe Festival Winner Aidan Dooley, this intimate piece of captivating theater re-enacts the heroic endeavors with a blend of drama, humor, and a rich Irish storytelling style that takes audiences to the edge of their seats…and beyond!

 


Prime $30 | Choice $25 | Student $10

 


“By the end, you almost believed you’d been there too, so perfectly does Dooley conjure the jaw-dropping battles against
the elements and perilous hazards of the frozen south. It’s enough to make your hair stand on end.”

— THE DAILY TELEGRAPH


“An unparalleled portrayal…”

— NEW YORK TIMES
