Courting Bertha: The Story of Bertha and Potter Palmer, a "Titanic-esque" love story set against The Great Chicago Fire, will make its debut in Alexandria on Friday, September 20 at 7 p.m. at Lakes Area Theatre (LAT).

The radio play tells the story of young socialite Bertha Honoré and Potter Palmer, a self-made man 20 years her senior, and how their passion inspired the rebirth of Chicago after The Great Fire left it in ruins.
