The Story

On April 14th you, the other passengers, and the crew are on board the Carpathia, sailing from New York and heading across the Atlantic. The journey will be a lengthy one, but you are excited for it. Along with you aboard the ship are some friends, family, and plenty of strangers. One, above all, sticks out to you. Her name is Kay and although she once worked on the ship, she is now sailing as a passenger. She has picked this specific journey to attend the onboard birthday party of her childhood best friend, Julia Cservenka, one of the stewardess. As the dinner unfolds, you become increasingly aware of a tension between these two individuals, a tension that is brought to a head when the whereabouts of a gift from Julia’s beau, Vernon, is questioned. Together, you and all others in attendance of the dinner, must help Julia and Kay get to the bottom of the mystery, before it is too late. Will you save this friendship and find the gift before Vernon turns up? Will the ship even make it to port on time?

For indeed, one can never know what to expect in those frigid waters of the Atlantic on those cold nights. The Carpathia might not be the most opulent of ocean liners, but it is the one you are on and history has a habit of unfolding right as you least expect it to.

The Experience

Join us online, for this one of a kind experience. You will receive historic characters from the RMS Carpathia’s passenger and crew list. You are encouraged to dress up in your best “1910s” attire, and interact with the characters. As you do, you’ll work together with your fellow attendees on games and puzzles that draw you deeper into the history of the period and hopefully find the missing brooch and save the party.

Audience members will receive desserts and tea delivered right to their door the day of the show.
