Antarctic explorer Tom Crean was one of the few men to serve with both Scott and Shackleton as well as survive three famous expeditions.

Historians describe his 36-mile solitary trek to rescue his comrades during one expedition as the finest feat of individual heroism from the entire age of exploration. Hear the riveting true stories of Crean’s adventures and courage in the face of impossible odds in this award-winning one-man show.
