The Last Lifeboat (Luke Yankee, 2012).

This world premiere of Luke Yankee’s latest play, The Last Lifeboat reveals the untold story of J. Bruce Ismay, the owner of the White Star Line at the time of the sinking of the Titanic, whose decision to save himself rather than go down with the ship made him the scapegoat for one of the greatest disasters of all time. Addressing the issues of corporate greed, commercial success-vs-human safety, survivor’s guilt, and how making a the choice not to follow one’s heart can destroy a life, even if it is ‘saved,’ an ensemble cast playing multiple roles tells this epic tale which explores not only the tragedy itself, but the sensationalized trials and aftermath of the night that changed the world forever.
