Winning best new musical at the 2019 Olivier Awards, Come From Away follows the real-life events of Gander residents taking in 7,000 air passengers stranded in Canada after 9/11. Learn how the Newfoundland community took in the ‘come from aways’ into their lives and into their hearts in this heart-warming show about those who suddenly found themselves in Gander at a momentous time.

Gander is a small Canadian town, but when 38 international aircraft are diverted to Gander airport after 9/11, the townspeople welcome in 7,000 passengers to the town by giving them shelter, food and clothes. Initiated as honorary Newfoundlanders, the “come from aways” deal with their new-found surroundings before being able to fly out of Gander and return to the United States. In a place where romance blossoms, prejudice can also grow and the show discusses how individuals are treated after the atrocity. Reuniting years after the attack, the show commemorates the compassionate behaviour of those who live in Gander and the neighbouring area.
