Theatre Aspen Education Presents the Winter Production of The Women of Lockerbie as it Takes Center Stage at the Black Box Theatre | February 15 – 18

Aspen, CO (January 29, 2024) – Theatre Aspen announces its winter high school production of the award-winning play, The Women of Lockerbie by Deborah Brevoort. Theatre Aspen’s Education Manager, James Early brings his vision of this lyrical story to life with a cast of 11 students from the Roaring Fork Valley. This contemporary drama, written in the structure of a Greek tragedy, begins in 1995 at a memorial service for the victims of Pan-Am Flight 103, which seven years earlier exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland.

Performance Dates and Times:

  • Thursday, February 15 at 7:00 PM
  • Friday, February 16 at 7:00 PM
  • Saturday, February 17 at 7:00 PM
  • Sunday, February 18 at 2:00 PM

Location: Black Box Theatre, 199 High School Rd, Aspen CO 81611

At the core of The Women of Lockerbie is the significance of human connection, today and always. We must support one another through loss, grief, and everything else the world throws our way. The women in the play fight to help the families of the victims of Pan Am 103 through acts of love and courage. They strive to build these human connections to show support and remind everyone that they do not have to face tragedy alone.

Director James Early says “These students have been working hard to tackle a new play with a very stylized approach. In approaching a new form of text and performance, they are gaining deeper insight to the craft of storytelling through theatre.”

Tickets are on sale now, students & RFV teachers: $15 | adults: $20

Tickets are available online at TheatreAspen.org/Lockerbie, via the Box Office at 970-300-4474 or at the door.

About The Show

The Women of Lockerbie
By Deborah Brevoort

A mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland, looking for her son’s remains that were lost in the crash of Pan Am 103. She meets the women of Lockerbie, who are fighting the U.S. government to obtain the clothing of the victims found in the plane’s wreckage. The women, determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love, want to wash the clothes of the dead and return them to the victim’s families. THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE is loosely inspired by a true story, although the characters and situations in the play are purely fictional. Written in the structure of a Greek tragedy, it is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate.

“Playwright Deborah Brevoort has a gift for high poetry and her descriptions of the day when death came raining down on Scotland are impressively moving…endowed with character, poetry and a core of touching emotion…” —Time Out London

The Women of Lockerbie is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
