AUDITION NOTICE: Scotland Road - Mercury Theatre

Title: Scotland Road

Presented By: Mercury Theatre Wynnum

Genre: Drama/Mystery

Synopsis: In the last decade of the twentieth century, a young woman in nineteenth-century clothing is found floating on an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. When rescued, she utters only one word: Titanic. The woman, named Winifred, is taken to an isolated spot on the coast of Maine where an expert on the sinking of the liner, a mysterious man named John, has arranged to interrogate her for six days. His goal: to crack her story, compel her to admit she’s a fraud, and uncover her true identity. His one clue: her enigmatic references to an unknown place called ‘Scotland Road.’ As we delve deeper into the mystery, the lines between truth and deception blur, and we discover the Titanic still holds some secrets.
