Conceived to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the great ship's sinking, New Repertory Theatre's production of Jimmy Titanic stars Colin Hamell (who appeared in New Rep's productions of Lieutenant of Inishmore and The Weir) as Belfast Shipyard worker Jimmy Boylan -- and nearly two dozen other characters -- whose lives were connected to the doomed ocean liner. From his new home in a humorously-rendered heaven, Boylan remembers and relives events surrounding the voyage, transported back in time through dramatic and sometimes comic vignettes. Written by Bernard McMullan, this one-man show has had successful runs in New York and elsewhere in the Northeast, and is soon headed to Ireland. Learn More

I had not read the book, I had not seen the film...I abhor brutality so avoided The Kite Runner. Sunday was coming up and I had no plans and a trip out to Watertown would be a bit of a challenge driving from Hingham but I thought that would take care of a block of empty time. I was totally absorbed by the story and touched time and again by the humanity. Still disturbed by the cruelties and betrayal I thought they were beautifully handled. The production was very well done, the actors convincing and touching and we had the opportunity to vent at the close of the piece with a chat with the cast members. Very very well done. Thanks
