Come From Away
Stranger, and more wonderful, than fiction.
The isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland, lies at the heart and soul of the celebrated musical, Come From Away. In the aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy, the small Canadian town opened its arms to thousands of stranded aircraft passengers from across the world. In the article The Kindness of Strangers, writer Konrad Marshall talks to the people of Gander, including its former Mayor, air traffic controllers, teachers, local police, fireman, bar owners and stoic residents – each and every one famously depicted on stage. Their unconditional acts of generosity provide the uplifting fabric and pulse of this Tony Award-winning show.
