The Man Who Left the Titanic
Presented by Isosceles in association with Useful Idiots
On April 15th 1912, the Titanic, the greatest ship in the world, slipped below the frigid waters of the Atlantic. Yet J.Bruce Ismay, Managing Director of the White Star Line, stepped into a lifeboat and sailed away from the stricken ship, sailed away from his passengers, sailed away from the cries and screams and tears.
The Man Who Left the Titanic evokes that terrible voyage and asks whether Bruce Ismay only did what any of us might have done in the same circumstances, or should his actions that night consign his name to infamy? Was he a coward, or merely human?
Following a hugely successful nationwide tour this show returns to the Mill Studio where it premiered in 2010. Isosceles have premiered 10 shows at the Mill Studio in the last decade.
