Overview

Come From Away is based on real-life events of residents of Gander taking in 7,000 air passengers stranded in Canada after 9/11. Learn how the Newfoundland community took in the ‘come from aways’ into their lives and into their hearts in this heart-warming show. 12 cast members play 84 characters between them in this fast-paced account of those who suddenly found themselves in Gander at a momentous time.

Visit: Phoenix Theatre, Church Road, London WC2H 0JP England

Gander is a small Canadian town, but when 38 international aircraft are diverted to Gander airport after 9/11, the townspeople welcome in 7,000 passengers to the town by giving them shelter, food and clothes. Initiated as honorary Newfoundlanders, the “come from aways” deal with their new-found surroundings before being able to fly out of Gander and return to the United States. In a place where romance blossoms, prejudice can also grow and the show discusses how individuals are treated after the atrocity. Reuniting years after the attack, the show commemorates the compassionate behaviour of those who live in Gander and the neighbouring area. You have the choice of two seating options for the performance. Standard-price seats offer a good view of the stage and are normally positioned in the rear stalls or dress circle. Alternatively, select top-price seating to enjoy a full view of the stage and get closer to the stars!
