Come From Away
Come From Away - a moving tale that captures the spirit of true events that transpired in the wake of 9/11!
This musical has taken the West End by storm, winning four Olivier Awards including one for Best New Musical. Aside from a fleet of five-star reviews, critics are not the only ones impressed by this daring new show.
On September 11, 2001, 38 planes had to make unexpected landings in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador. Come From Away tells the story of what happened when the residents of this small community struggle to accommodate nearly 7,000 passengers as they and the world are reeling in the days following 9/11. Many of the characters are based on real-life passengers, including Nick and Diane Marson, a Brit and an American who fell in love in real life following the disaster.
Tony® and Grammy® nominated writers Irene Sankoff and David Hein have taken the accounts of those involved and brought a charming cast of characters to life.
