Ship of Death: The Wreck of the Victoria
Written by Maridon Duncanson and directed by Sherri Munroe.

On May 24, 1881, close to 200 London citizens were tragically drowned when the Victoria, returning from a glorious outing in Springbank Park, capsized in the Thames River. Ship of Death: The Wreck of the Victoria follows the lives of the passengers that day and the devastating events that unfolded. Audiences will be horrified by the tragedy, astounded by the Heroism and enthralled with the gripping depiction.

Performances at 7:00, 8:00 and 9:00pm on Thursday and Sunday nights and 7:00, 8:00, 9:00 and 10:00pm on Friday and Saturday nights. Book on-line at
