THE REIMAGINED 2020/21 SEASON

Titanic (Streaming)

(Scenes from the British Wreck Commissioner's Inquiry, 1912)
by Owen McCafferty
Directed by Vanessa Stalling

Jun 14, 2021 — Jul 11, 2021

A survivors’ story fraught with intrigue, bravery, and human frailty, Owen McCafferty’s Titanic (Scenes from the British Wreck Commissioner’s Inquiry, 1912) tells the story of the sinking of the RMS Titanic using verbatim testimonies from a court investigation of the wreck. Presented in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, an ensemble of actors probes the causes of the catastrophe, the value systems that enabled it, and if indeed it was actually preventable.

Vanessa Stalling (Jeff Award-winning director of Photograph 51 and United Flight 232) brings her singular artistry to McCafferty’s text to craft a lush aural experience that allows audiences to explore the tragedy from multiple perspectives. Leveraging audio technology, she and her team will create an expansive soundscape that allows the testimonies of each individual to resonate with audiences through a heightened, intimate experience that pushes the boundaries of design and theatrical performance.

You might like this if… you’re ready for a non-romanticized take on the sinking of the Titanic, you can’t get enough of courtroom procedurals, you love behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of theatre or film

The Vibe: Intimate, tense, confessional, justice
