Heaven's Gate - a centennial drama for RMS Titanic

In the centenary year of the sinking of the Titanic its very appropriate that this play is coming to Cobh. The show was written to commemorate the centennial of the RMS Titanic and has been very well received in Southampton, Liverpool and across the Atlantic in New York and Halifax. Its showing in Cobh will complete the circle of Titanic cities. 

Set in the hours following the tragedy, the show focuses on the fate of three people on board. Based on real people, the show tells their story in an emotive and imaginative way. In this forum theatre production, the audience vote to decide how the play will end. 

The show is performed by Quids In Theatre Company who are an innovative new theatre company from Aberdeen, Scotland who are bringing their show 'Heaven's Gate' by Annie James to Ireland on the last part of their tour of Titanic cities. There are four in the cast and the play lasts one hour and fifty minute with a fifteen minute interval.

The play will be held in the Jack Doyle Room of the Commodore Hotel next Saturday 20th October at 7:30pm and admission is free (donations gratefully accepted).
