Jimmy Titanic

A Tír Na Productions presentation

West Cork Fit-up Festival, 2015


August 11th – August 20th

Written by: Bernard McMullan
Performed by: Colin Hamell
Directed by: Carmel O’Reilly

Running Time: 75 mins – no interval

God is a Dublin gangster, Angel Gabriel is the effeminate and plucky keeper at the gates of heaven and Titanic’s legacy is 700 crewman scoring all over heaven on a weekly basis.

This is Titanic like you’ve never seen it before. Having gone down with the ship Jimmy has rock star status in heaven and boy does he milk it. Flirting with angels, rewriting history and with a direct line to an unlikely God — Jimmy Titanic is a unique and hilarious take on the story of the greatest ship ever built.


Colin Hamell is the artistic director of Tír Na Theatre, Boston and his show Jimmy Titanic premiered at the Origin Theatre’s 1st Irish Festival in NYC. He is originally a native of Navan, Co. Meath and now lives in Boston where he has worked with many different companies and performed in numerous shows throughout the states. Colin is delighted to bring his one man show Jimmy Titanic to the West Cork Fit-up Theatre Festival.
