About the show
A mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland, looking for her son’s remains that were lost in
the crash of Pan Am Flight 103. During her search, 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 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. Winner
of the silver medal in the Onassis International Playwriting Competition and the Kennedy Center Fund for New
American Plays award
