Titanic Survivor Violet Jessop A First-Person Historical Portrayal Based on the True Story Written and Performed by Leslie Goddard When the HMHS Britannic sank during World War 1, few survivors emerged with a toothbrush. Violet Jessop, however, had hers, remembering what she had missed after the sinking of the RMS Titanic (the Britannic’s identical sister ship in 1912. The only person to survive both sinkings, Jessop tells unforgettable stories of the terrifying disasters and gives a fascinating glimpse at life behind-the-scenes on the most glamorous luxury liners of their day. Trained as a historian, Leslie Goddard earned a Ph.D. from Northwestern University specializing in U.S. history, cultural history and women’s studies. She also holds both a master's and a bachelor's degree in theater and has worked in the field of museum education for more than ten years. Her programs combine this teaching and performing experience with her background as a researcher and historian.
