The Brick presents
Never Let Go: An Unauthorized Retelling of James Cameron’s Titanic
Created by Michael Kinnan
May 22-June 1, 2024




















Never Let Go is a “feat of ingenuity” (NY Times). This uproariously queer one-man show distills the three-plus hour epic and packs into one hour a surprisingly subversive punch. Michael Kinnan plays each character with “perfectly executed comedy, pathos and homage” (ScotsGay Arts). As told by Rose, the play takes you on an intimate journey into the fateful romance that is shadowed by one of the most devastating man-made disasters of modern history – the sinking of the Titanic. Never Let Go is “a truly unique and absorbing high camp theatrical piece” (Culture Fix).
