Titanic (Scenes from the British Wreck Commissioner's Inquiry, 1912)  
Online Stream Titanic (Scenes from the British Wreck Commissioner's Inquiry, 1912)
 
The sinking of the RMS Titanic has long been studied for its historical significance and unmistakable hubris. A survivors' story fraught with intrigue, Owen McCafferty's Titanic (Scenes from the British Wreck Commissioner's Inquiry, 1912) tells the story using verbatim testimonies from witnesses of the wreck. What emerges is a startling portrait of class, chaos, and moral ambiguity. Vanessa Stalling (Jeff Award-winning director of Photograph 51 and United Flight 232) brings her singular artistry to McCafferty's text. 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, visceral experience that pushes the boundaries of design and theatrical performance. A digital version will be available to stream for patrons who do not yet wish to attend in person.

A new audio play with original music and immersive 360 sound.

Mismatched lovers and a steward decked out in yellow stockings navigate the slippery shores of Illyria in search of their very own happy endings. Separated in a sea storm from her brother Sebastian and washed ashore, Viola adopts a male disguise and enters the service of Duke Orsino-only to find herself in the middle of a complex triangle of unrequited love.

Unbeknownst to Shylock, however, his own daughter has begun an illicit romance that may bring their whole world crashing down on all their heads. A crossover between Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice" and "The Tragedy of Othello," "The Venetians" uses two classical outsiders to ask questions about immigration, assimilation, national identity and what "acceptance" truly means.
