In the 1990s a young woman, in turn-of-the-century clothes, is found floating on an iceberg in the Atlantic. The only word she speaks is, “Titanic.”
This is the basis for Jeffrey Hatcher’s play Scotland Road being presented by the SFU Center for Fine Arts March 21-23 at the JFK Auditorium on the university campus.
“I call it a mystery of titanic proportions,” said Assistant Professor of Theatre F. J. Hartland, who is directing the play. “The characters attempt to unlock the mystery. Is the woman for real…a hoax…a ghost?”
Hartland added, “As with any good mystery, nothing is as it first appears.”
Sophomore English major Jack Weidner of Johnstown plays the lead role of John, an expert on The Titanic who is anxious to prove the woman is a hoax. Weidner was last seen on the SFU stage in Proof last year.
Cast as a psychologist hired by John is freshman chemistry major, Madison Palmer, of Honesdale, PA. She is making her SFU debut in Scotland Road.
As the mysterious woman is forensic chemistry major Kayla Rosas of Altoona PA. She is also making her SFU debut.
Rounding out the cast as the last living survivor of The Titanic disaster is A. Q. Crusciel, a freshman English major from Loretto, PA. Crusciel appeared in last fall’s production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
Adam Lewis Russell, a junior political science major, is serving as the stage manager/assistant director. Serving as the understudy for the play is freshman physician assistant major, Julia Chmielewiec from Coventry, CT.
