Titanic: Tragedy and Trial

Book By: Pat Cook
Play #: 8160
Pages: 65 pgs
Cast: Large, flexible cast

In Act One, "Voices From the Titanic," the stage comes alive with the passengers and crew who address the audience directly. We see the magnificent, "almost unsinkable" ship through the eyes of both the first-class and third-class passengers. When the ship's lookout, Frederick Fleet, spots the iceberg, all the officers are called upon to carry out the most dreaded command Capt. Smith ever had to issue: "Get the lifeboats ready!" The ending is an emotional powerhouse as the cast recites name after name of those who survived ... and those who did not. In Act Two, "Echoes From the Titanic," the survivors talk about the disaster in their own words in this adaptation of the 1912 Senate hearings. The re-enacted testimony gives witness to the events surrounding the rush to the lifeboats and rescue of the survivors. Representational sets. (Can be performed separately. See one-act listings.)
