Join us for a poignant contemporary drama based on true events that transpired in Lockerbie, Scotland.
The Women of Lockerbie is based on true events surrounding the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 in 1988. The plane crashed into residential areas of Lockerbie, Scotland, killing all 257 passengers and crew on board, and 11 people on the ground.
Set seven years after the attack, the play tells the fictional story of a couple from New Jersey who has come to Lockerbie to honor the anniversary of their son’s death aboard the flight. They meet a group of women who are fighting to obtain the clothing of the victims found in the wreckage. The women, determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love, want to wash the clothes of the dead and return them to the victims’ families.
A poetic drama about a community’s response to terrible suffering, The Women of Lockerbie celebrates the triumph of love and connection.
