The Women of Lockerbie
BY DEBORAH BREVOORT
31 August 2005 — 1 October 2005
The Women of Lockerbie is set on 21 December 1995, the 7th anniversary of the day that the Pan Am 103 flight exploded over Lockerbie. The play deals with the depths of grief and hatred that terrorist acts create in those left behind.
Madeline and Bill Livingston, whose 20 year old son was killed in the crash, have come to Scotland for the first time since their son’s death. Madeline is still inconsolable at the loss of her son whose body was never found. But the women of Lockerbie have also suffered tragedy and are prepared to confront the 'powers that be' to turn what was an act of hate into an act of love.
A tragedy for our times.
