Abstract:

Two men: Tom Crean, the Kerryman, whose phenomenal feats of bravery in the unexplored Antarctic earned him a rare medal for valour, pinned on him by King George. Aidan Dooley, the Galway man, who rejected a job in the bank for a life on the stage. One story: In this enthralling, funny and moving account, actor Aidan Dooley tells the story of his journey with Tom Crean. His one-man show about this unsung hero grew from an unknown play with an unknown actor into an award-winning hit that has been performed from Dublin to Dubai, and from Broadway to the Antarctic ice. This is a tale of fortitude and courage -- on stage and in the savage beauty at the bottom of the world.
