Don't miss the Ship of Death:  The Wreck of the Victoria
Written by Maridon Duncanson and directed by Sherri Munroe.

On May 24, 1881, close to 200 London citizens were tragically drowned  
when the Victoria, returning from a glorious outing in Springbank  
Park, capsized in the Thames River.  Ship of Death:  The Wreck of the  
Victoria follows the lives of the passengers that day and the  
devastating events that unfolded. Audiences will be horrified by the  
tragedy, astounded by the Heroism and enthralled with the gripping  
depiction.
