Doppelgangster’s Titanic

THE SIGNS AND STAGES OF THE MAKING OF THE GREATEST SHOW THERE HAS EVER BEEN: THE SHOW OF DREAMS
INFORMATION

Doppelgangster’s TITANIC rips up the screenplay from James Cameron’s 1997 epic Hollywood tear-jerker and a maelstrom of other sources including the Titanic DVD Special Features Disk and eye-witness, survivor accounts of people who actually saw the film at the movies.

Risks include: electrocution, drowning, hypothermia, car crash, falling from a height, blunt force trauma, limb severance / loss of limbs, suffocation, noise-induced hearing damage, early 20th Century political spin, bureaucratic confusion, and public anxiety!

Doppelgangster’s TITANIC is about ‘educated guesses’, ‘operational matters’ and the impossible pursuit of ‘truth’. This most grand spectacle is staged entirely from a shipping container and stars Australian enfant terrible Tobias Manderson-Galvin (MKA | Theatre of New Writing) as Titanic Director Cameron; bon vivant and raconteur Dr Tom Payne (Silver Rocket Club, Hydrocitizens) as handsome, though slightly aged, Leonardo DiCaprio; the shipping container as ‘Rose’, and all accompanied by a recorded and amplified score by Jules ‘Crazy Legs’ Pascoe. First class seats available.
