She was floating on an iceberg, all alone. The beautiful young woman, dressed in clothing from 1912, was discovered by Norwegian fishermen — not in 1912, but 1992. After being rescued, she uttered only one word, “Titanic.”
Pellissippi State Technical Community College delves into the mystery when it presents the play “Scotland Road,” by Jeffrey Hatcher.
The performances take place at 8 p.m. Oct. 24, 25 and 31 and Nov. 1 and at 2 p.m. Nov. 2 in the Performing Arts Center on the Pellissippi Campus on Hardin Valley Road.
The enigmatic young woman is taken to an isolated spot on the coast of Maine, where an expert on the sinking of the Titanic has arranged to interrogate her for six days. His goal: Crack her story, get her to confess she’s a fake and reveal her true identity. His one clue: Her references to an unknown place called Scotland Road.
Characters are played by Pellissippi State Theatre faculty member Dorothy Donaldson, Jennifer Loveday, Pellissippi State alumnus James Francis and Pellissippi State student Cassie Hiles.
Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for non-Pellissippi State students and seniors, and $6 for Pellissippi State students, faculty and staff.
