In a first of its kind collaboration, we are working with students from the Bristol Institute of Performing Arts (BIPA). The Passenger Takeover will follow special costumed character training here at the SS Great Britain with Bristol Improv Theatre. Each Victorian passenger is inspired by a real person who travelled on board the ship. The bespoke costumes were created by film and TV standard, Bristol Costume Services.
