TOM Crean is one of Ireland’s unsung heroes. The intrepid Antarctic explorer, born in Kerry in 1877 joined the navy at just 15 years of age and went on to have adventures that you and I can only experience at the movies.

In “Tom Crean – Antarctic Explorer”, which comes to Garter Lane on Friday and Saturday, April 28 and 29, celebrated actor Aidan Dooley brings Tom back to life in a captivating way. You will feel like you’re there with the man himself amidst adventures like the time he was trapped for months on sheets of ice after his ship was crushed. 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).

Tom 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".

The Irish Times called this show a “magnetic revelation of a fascinating character that simply compels a standing ovation,” while the New York Times said it was “an unparalleled portrayal…it isn’t the destination; it is the journey. Mr Dooley’s effort’s so vividly embodies that maxim you almost believe it.”

This is a great chance to see a play that has been loved the world over, right on your door step in Garter Lane on Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29. Tickets are €21 (concession €16) and available from http://www.garterlane.ie
