Come From Away

Date: 20 Sep 2021

Come From Away follows the real-life journey of 7,000 air passengers who became grounded in Gander, Newfoundland in the hours and days after the attacks on the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001.

The small community that welcomed the ‘come from aways’ into their lives provided hope and compassion to those in need.

David Hein and Irene Sankoff (book, music and lyrics), travelled to Newfoundland and interviewed thousands of locals, compiling their stories to share with the world.

The musical won a Tony Award and four Olivier Awards including Best New Musical, Best Theatre Choreographer, Best Sound Design and Outstanding Achievement in Music.
