Romancing the Hunley production to be presented at Coastal

"Romancing the Hunley," an original one-act play written and performed by William G. Thomas-Moore, will be presented at Coastal Carolina University on Tuesday, April 23 at 7:30 p.m. in Edwards Theater. Admission is $10, $5 for students under the age of 18.

The play is set three days after the sinking of the USS Housatonic in Charleston Harbor by the legendary Confederate submarine CSS Hunley. The one-hour docu-drama, reminiscent of the 1950s-'60s television series You Are There with Walter Cronkite, takes place in the parlor of the fictional Dr. Moore, physician to the Hunley's crew, as he is interviewed by a modern day reporter, played by Diane Louise Scher. In their question and answer session, the dramatic, mysterious story of the Hunley is recounted in vivid detail.

Thomas-Moore, who has lectured on the Hunley since 1997, has acted in the films "The Patriot," "The Hunley," and "The Legend of Bagger Vance." He is a professional master model shipbuilder and has built two Hunley models for permanent collections - one five-foot replica on display at the Charleston Museum and one which was presented to S.C. Sen. Glenn F. McConnell, the Hunley Commission chairman, in 2000.
