Spring 2017

The Women of Lockerbie by Debra Brevoort

March 9, 10, 11  at 7:30 and March 12 at 2:00.

Auditions to be announced in late January of 2017.

 The Women of Lockerbie is inspired by a true story  A mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland, searching desperately for her son's remains that were lost in the crash of Pan Am flight 103. She meets the women of Lockerbie, who are fighting the U.S. government to release the clothing of the victims found in the plane's wreckage. Written in the structure of a Greek tragedy, it is a compact poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate.

 "A moving, thoughtful exploration of how grief changes over time." —The New Yorker. "…catches the grim mood [of a terrorist attack] better than anything I've yet seen on the subject of 9/11 and its aftermath. In its tightly controlled depiction of collective sorrow…it becomes almost unbearably moving." -Daily Telegraph
