Flying out on tour

Following well-received engagements on Broadway and its premiere city Toronto, this new hit musical based on true events has headed out on its first national tour! Nominated for eight Tony Awards and nine Drama Desk gongs, this is a musical that celebrates human endurance, compassion and bravery under dreadful circumstances. Written by Canadian husband and wife team Irene Snakoff and David Hein, this surprise hit is the toast of Broadway.

What is Come From Away About?

On September 11th 2001, as the full horror of the terror attacks became apparent, the US closed its airspace, grounding thousands of passenger jets heading in, out and throughout of North America. An astonishing 38 of them were forced to land in Gander, a remote Newfoundland town with a population of just 9,000 people. The arrival of the passengers boosted those numbers to nearly 20,000.

Come From Away focuses on a single set of passengers from one flight and the Gander residents who welcomed them into their homes. Amongst this diverse set of characters is American Airlines' first female pilot, a gay couple both called Kevin, and an Egyptian chef, whose initial apprehensions about the reception he will receive proves unfounded. Weaving together all of their storylines, the show creates an affirming portrait of human connection in the most trying of circumstances.

Did You Know?

The musical gets its title from Newfoundland slang. The people of Gander refer to the passengers as "come from aways".
