New Repertory Theatre Presents a
Tir Na Production of JIMMY TITANIC
A Boston Premiere
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's only voyage, this comedic drama takes place in heaven, exploring the lost dreams of immigrants looking for a new life, fleeing oppression, poverty, or the law-or just looking for a fresh start. Colin Hamell (who appeared in New Rep productions of Lieutenant of Inishmore and The Weir) plays nearly two dozen characters including Irish shipbuilders Jimmy Boylan and his friend Tommy, who worked on building the Titanic in Belfast, as well as many European emigrants, a New York Times editor, and the Mayor of Belfast.
