Design by Don Yanik
January 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30 – 2010
Matinee: January 30, 2:00 PM
The Women of Lockerbie is inspired by the terrorist bombing of a Pan Am commercial airliner in December 1988 and its aftermath. It chronicles the journey of a couple from New Jersey, whose son was one of the passengers, to Lockerbie, as well as the remarkable crusade of the women of Lockerbie to claim and wash the clothes of the victims as a gesture of communal healing and closure. Written in the structure of a Greek tragedy, it is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate. Winner of the silver medal in the Onassis International Playwriting Competition and the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays Award.
Performed on the James Leon Chapman Stage
