My Life With The Titanic

Note: This review is from 2001

Review by Steve Bennett

Susan Morrison admits she has a problem - she's obsessed with the ghost of a ship that sank 89 years ago.

And after running low on people to bore at parties, she decided to stage this Edinburgh show so she could share her - well, hobby would be too gentle a word for it - with complete strangers.

But being cornered by her doesn't seem so dreadful a prospect in the light of this enjoyable show, introduced by the delightfully funny Donna Krachan.

Morrison proves an easy raconteur, relating a slight but entertaining series of yarns about how this one single topic has dominated her life.

The ideas still need to be developed further, as the show never really gets to the heart of the obsession - it's more a series of self-deprecating gags about how you'd hate to be stuck in a car with her, rather than a real insight into the passion - but there is plenty here to enjoy.

And whatever you do, don't mention that film.
