    About the play:

    Isidor and Ida Straus had everything — a happy marriage, a loving family, great wealth, and prestige. Even though they lost their lives prematurely on the deck of The Titanic, they bicker affectionately on a park bench about their experience. Their love, arguments, and an additional consolation survived the wave.
