Books > The Women of Lockerbie performances, free reading about terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103
The Columbia Entertainment Company presents The Women of Lockerbie, a play by Deborah Brevoort about terrorism and a women coping with the loss of her son. In the play, a New Jersey mother goes to Scotland to search for the remains of her son, who was killed in the historical bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 in 1988 (See Wikipedia page here). There, she meets women who are working to overcome the act of terrorism in their community by returning lost clothing to the victims’ families.
The play is written like a Greek tragedy and mixes history with the stage. The Lockerbie Laundry Project was an effort to collect and clean the 11,000 clothing items that fell to earth after the bombing. The clothing was returned to family members.
