Women of Lockerbie Review

A very thoughtful, eloquent and positive review has been posted by Deborah Brevoort over at Stage Whispers. Read the review then go see the show.

Michelle Masefield leads the chorus as Olive Allison – a local woman who carries her memories closely.  Masefield finds all the nuances of Allison’s personality. Her persuasive depiction encompasses compassion, understanding, leadership – and grief – in a lilting accent that emphasises the strength of the character.

The show continues until August 12. Book tickets online at the Pavillion Theatre.

Women of Lockerbie

Michelle’s next play is Women of Lockerbie at the Pavilion Theatre in Castle Hill.

PERFORMANCE Dates July 21 – August 12
Wednesday, Friday and Saturday: 8.15 pm Sunday: 4.30 pm

A mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland, looking for her son’s remains that were lost in the crash of Pan Am Flight 103. During her search, she meets the women of Lockerbie, who are fighting the U.S. government to obtain the clothing of the victims found in the plane’s wreckage.

The women, determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love, want to wash the clothes of the dead and return them to the victim’s families.

The Women of Lockerbie is loosely inspired by a true story, although the characters and situations in the play are purely fictional. Written in the structure of a Greek tragedy, it is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate. Winner of the silver medal in the Onassis International Playwriting Competition and the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays award.

Thomas is nine and he’s started writing a book. His father says all important books are about God. Even so, Thomas writes down all the interesting things he sees that other
people seem to ignore: tropical fish in the canal, a deluge of frogs, the Son of God popping in for a chat…

He also writes down his greatest determination: When I grow up, I’m going to be happy.

Featuring Jesus, the angels, the Bottombiter, the startling Mrs Van Amersfoort and a beautiful girl with a leather leg, this is a totally magical story about a child learning how to act when faced with fear and injustice.
