CRANFORD —The Traveling Literary Theater will present “Titanic: Survivors and Their Stories” on Wednesday, April 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue. The free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library.
At the time of its sinking on April 15, 1912, Titanic was the largest ship the world had ever seen. Of the more than 2,200 people aboard, less than one third survived the disaster.
“Titanic: Survivors and Their Stories” is a documentary play written by the Traveling Literary Theater’s Maggie Worsdale, who also appears in the play, along with her husband, Thomas Worsdale, and James Dyne. The text of the play is taken from period journals, official inquiries, and survivors’ memoirs. The cast, dressed in 1912 fashions, will read aloud the recollections of more than 35 survivors and others, such as the captain of the rescue ship, that trace the fatal voyage and its aftermath.
