The Women of Lockerbie. From Nov 9th through Nov 17th, 2007.
NSU Theatre opens its third season with the drama The Women of Lockerbie, the story of a mother from New Jersey who roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland, looking for her son’s remains that were lost in the crash of Pan Am 103. While there, she meets the women of Lockerbie, who are fighting the U.S. government to obtain the clothing of the victims found in the plane’s 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 victim’s families. The Women of Lockerbie, written by Deborah Brevoort, is loosely inspired by a true story, although the characters and situations in the play are purely fictional. Written in the structure of a Greek tragedy, it is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate.
