Titanic by Christopher Durang


Titanic opens in the Titanic’s dining room, where the Tammurais (Richard, Victoria, and their son Teddy) are seated. Pondering why they haven’t been seated at the captain’s table, Richard suggests that the “snub” may be a result of Victoria’s less-than-noble past growing up on a pig farm in Indiana. Victoria in turn announces that she wants a divorce and further reveals that Teddy is not Richard’s natural son, which prompts Richard to claim that their unseen daughter Annabella is not Victoria’s natural daughter. From here, there is a comedic blur between three characters: Annabella, Harriet Lindsey, and Lidia.

In the final scene, we return to the Titanic’s dining room where Teddy and Annabella/Harriet/Lidia exact deadly revenge on Richard and Victoria, just before it appears once more that the ship has struck an iceberg…but has it?
