In response to the Government’s Level 5 restrictions and to reach our audiences in a new way, The Civic will stream a live performance of ‘Tom Crean Antarctic Explorer’ on Thursday, October 29th from 8pm for one night only. 

Tom Crean, 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.  We invite you to stream this critically- acclaimed show into your home,  brought to life on your phone, tablet, Smart TV or computer.

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 the three famous expeditions: Discovery, (1901 – 1904); Terra Nova (1910 – 1913); and Endurance (1914 – 1916).
