SuperNova - Day 1

April 14, 1912 -- A story that neede to be told (again)

Posted on Fri, May 2, 2008 at 8:21 AM

Does the world really need another retelling of the tragedy of Titanic? The answer is yes if it is Theatre Rusticle’s original and mesmerizing production April 14, 1912. What sets this show apart is the personification of the "unsinkable" ship. Lucy Rupert dazzles as the proud vessel cutting through the calm sea, her long wake streaming out behind her, and she is riveting as she contorts herself through the ship’s death throes. The human perspective is given by Patrick Connor and Matthew Romantini who portray real-life Marconi Officers Jack Phillips and Harold Bride. Their relationship is both amusing and touching. Added to all this is a wonderful score and a hauntingly evocative set. This is a stunning and memorable production.

April 14, 1912 runs May 2 at 11am and May 3 and 4 at 6pm at Alderney Landing Theatre.
