Playwright Ron Hutchinson places his story in the context of where he grew up and the extraordinary effect the Titanic story has had the world over. If you think you really know how and why the Titanic sank, buckle up and get ready to hear an alternative version of events.

It's 1912 and Emma Hinton has come to New York 6 months after the sinking of the Titanic determined to find out the real reason the ship sank and her fianc? died. And having met William MacBride from Belfast she thinks she's found the answer. But it's an answer that some very powerful men in London and New York do not want made public.
