This brand new musical is the winner of 4 Olivier Awards, including Best Sound Design and Best New Musical. It tells the real-life story of what happened when 7,000 people landed in Newfoundland during the aftermath of 9/11. The people of Gander welcomed in ‘come from aways’ from all other the world, and formed a story of unity, humanity and hope.
The tiny community of Gander came together to help care for their confused and scared visitors. Everyone from the Mayor, to the head-teacher to the police offered their services. There are friendships formed through the confusion, between passengers and the people of Newfoundland.
Come From Away was also nominated for seven Tony Awards, winning the Best Direction of a Musical award.
