Discover a remarkable 9/11 story that was largely unknown, until now, with Come From Away at the Phoenix Theatre.
What is Come From Away about?
As the events of 11 September 2001 unfolded, the US closed its airspace, forcing planes to land elsewhere. One such place was Gander – on the Canadian island of Newfoundland – where 38 flights were diverted.
Relive the experiences of some of the small town’s 10,000 inhabitants, and 7,000 passengers who landed there unexpectedly that day. Join a spirited group of characters whose stories are brought to life through music, as fear and confusion are turned into hope and unity in this uplifting musical.
Written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein and awarded the Tony for Best Direction of a Musical, this true, but little-known, story is set to enchant new audiences in London following record-breaking performances in the US.
