The Women of Lockerbie

By Deborah Brevoort

Directed by Allen Ebert

The play deals with the psychological effects of a tragedy and examines how grief changes over time. Based on the 1988 crash of Pan Am Flight 103, in Lockerbie, Scotland, the story focuses on how society processes trauma. It is a story about the human spirit and how to convert an act of unspeakable hatred into an act of love.
