Sunday, January 8, 2023 at 3:00 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

An enduringly powerful story with a new date & time.

If web says "Sold Out," there may be cancellations at the door.

       The Titanic set sail with a fire in its stoke-hold, the lookouts had no binoculars because the keys to their cupboards were missing, and wireless inventor Marconi had such little faith in the ship’s radio system that he cancelled his reservation.

       From these facts, playwright Ron Hutchinson has woven a story that may leave you asking if there really was an iceberg that April night one hundred and ten years ago.

       This Titanic story is an Irish one and a New York one and the tale will be told by Erin Treadway, Kevin O'Brien, Maia Guest, Ciaran Byrne, Christine Bokhour, and Miles Purinton and directed by James Shearwood.
