About This Show

Created and directed by Wendy Ward

An original piece representing the inaugural production of The Ward Studio Company
Christine Brumbaugh, Matt W. Cody, Katia Hoerning,
Jay T. Johnson*, Suzie Mellring, and Lara Silva

A Shipwreck as LARGE as the Titanic, in a space as intimate as your living room.

A dream landscape where the audience sits inside the play rather than viewing it from a detached distance.

Act I: First class , performed with an off-beat Dickensian feel, created by stellar acting, gorgeous costumes, and an opening slow-motion movement sequence that is startling in its detail.

Act II: Steerage , acted in four different languages with delightful and distressing surprise, as the story of those trapped in the ship’s belly unfolds in reverse sequence.

Six actors, thirty characters, enchanting musical accompaniment… a choice pick for an unusual evening of entertainment!
