Come From Away is the story of how the city of Gander, Newfoundland rose up to the occasion when 7,000 airline passengers were diverted to their small town on 9/11. The population of 9,000 friendly Canadians opened up their homes, schools, and community centers to provide shelter and food for the stranded travelers. It’s a true feel good story about people rising to the occasion in the face of tragedy.
It’s a very fast paced production propelled all the way by the Celtic style music. It does a great job of matching the frenzy happening in the city. All 12 of the actors play multiple characters who do a great job with the Canadian accent. The play goes an hour and 45 minutes without an intermission.
