Based on the Senate and British Inquiries and survivor accounts, the play is told through the eyes of J. Bruce Ismay, president of the White Star Line at the time of the disaster. After spending 25 years in seclusion, Ismay is now near the end of his life. Enter three spirits–a Titanic Officer, a First Class Passenger, and a Third Class Passenger–who confront him with the truths about his company’s role in the tragedy. They also take him on a sweeping journey back to April 1912 to stand witness to the disaster.
With the exception of these main characters, the lines spoken by the survivor characters are based on direct quotes from that time. Also, all the information and facts noted in the dialog are factual, based on our current understandings. The play involves 19-25 actors playing over 110 roles.
