What Is The Show About
Come From Away tells the story of what happened to a small town called Gander,Newfoundland and Labrador during the events of September 11, 2001, when 38 planes had to unexpectedly land. The small community had to rally together throughout the struggle and accommodate nearly 7,000 passengers following the tragedy of 9/11. Many of the characters are based upon real-life passengers, including Nick and Diane Marson, a Brit and an American who fell in love in real life following the disaster.
Tony® and Grammy® nominated writers Irene Sankoff and David Hein have taken the accounts of those involved and created a musical full of charm, wit and compassion.
