Discovering Antarctica: Heroic Tales of Shackleton, Scott & Crean

Venue The Atkinson
Admission £14/£12
Start Time 20:00
End Time 22:15

Set during The Golden Age of Antarctic Exploration (1901-1916),  discover the riveting stories of the only man who served standing alongside Scott and Shackleton in three of the most daring and challenging expeditions to the great white continent including Shackleton’s ill-fated Endurance expedition.

Crean’s story is a testament of human fortitude against all the elements of Antarctica. The play takes you to the edge of your seat … and beyond, as it re-enacts many of the era’s heroic endeavours. This includes Crean’s infamous 36-mile solitary trek to base camp during the Terra Nova expedition to rescue his comrades – described by Antarctic historians as “the finest feat of individual heroism from the entire age of exploration”.

The show has won critical acclaim, multiple awards and continues to enjoy sell-out performances and standing ovations. Having toured globally, including a stop in Antarctica, nearly a quarter of a million people have been captivated by the show and the heroic tales it brings to life.
