Just wondering if anyone here is planning to see (or has seen) Deborah Jean Templin's show 'Unsinkable Women'? It's currently touring the US. There doesn't seem to be mention of the show here yet, but it does sound quite interesting.

Templin seems to be quite well known as an actor in the US through her work in live theatre (although she’s also a playwright and educator). She was in the touring cast of the Broadway musical Titanic and, inspired by the stories of Titanic’s women survivors, devised her own one woman show based on their experiences. The show is a mix of period music (several genres from popular songs to Victor Herbert), story telling and (apparently) dance. The stories told cover eight women from all walks of life including Madeleine Astor, the Countess of Rothes, Stewardess Violet Jessop and ‘Unsinkable Molly Brown’. (After all, how can you have an ‘Unsinkable Women’ show without her!)

Her website www.djtemplin.com has information on 'Windows - Stories and Songs of Unsinkable Women' (including that the production has an educational aspect and is accompanied by a study guide and lesson plans for those interested). Sadly the performance information isn’t provided although press releases available elsewhere indicate that the show is touring to over 60 cities! I found the press release, a few feature articles and a lot of tour dates by googling “Unsinkable Women” Templin, just in case that helps anyone.

If anyone does attend the show, I’d be interested in knowing more.

Good news! Deborah Jean Templin has updated her site to include the complete tour dates for Unsinkable Women, right through to early May:

Someone out there must be thinking of seeing it. Surely?

Eagerly awaiting a report,
F
