On Friday September 24th, 2021, Living Historian Leslie Goddard introduces audiences to ocean liner stewardess, memoirist, and nurse Violet Jessop, known for surviving two maritime disasters: the Titanic shipwreck of 1912 and the sinking of the Britannic in 1916. In a solo portrayal, Titanic Survivor Violet Jessop, Goddard recounts the unforgettable stories of these terrifying disasters and provides a fascinating glimpse at life behind-the-scenes on the most glamorous luxury liners of their time.

In this livestream episodic series, Pay-Per-HAP travels back to the golden age of ocean liner travel, accompanied by Violet Jessop; first-class stewardess for the White Star Line and survivor of the sinkings of both the RMS Titanic and the HMHS Britannic, one of Titanic’s sister ships. This solo performance, featuring actress and scholar Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., takes you aboard the RMS Olympic, third of the three sister ships, in the years following World War I. As Jessop enjoys a brief respite from serving the Olympic's passengers, she shares incredible stories of the terrifying disasters and offers a fascinating glimpse into the lives of domestic workers on the sea. Written and performed by Goddard, this presentation is based on stories from Jessop’s memoir, Titanic Survivor.
