Venue: 9 -Shaw Performing Arts Centre (MTYP)

Four individuals open the show as themselves and fire off interesting facts about the RMS

Titanic. This immediately set the tone for the rest of the play and what followed was a delight.

The cast do a fantastic job of keeping you interested in a story you think you already know. The

story is told through many distinct characters that have you clinging on to every word they say.

Through 60 minutes the cast will have you laughing and happy to be aboard the ship with them

and at the halfway point, you will be in panic with the characters on stage while the ship sinks.

The minimalist props are used to create fantastic imagery; There were only a couple of

moments where the directors visuals were a little too ambitious causing me lose the illusion and

track of what was happening on stage while I tried to figure out what was I was seeing.

A stellar show from the Edmonton based troupe and deserve our support! Go see The Titanic!
