Play reading of 'The Women of Lockerbie' at Chatham Community Players

The Chatham Community Players' successful "Sundays @ 7" Play Reading Series is to present Deborah Brevoort's, The Women of Lockerbie. One Night ONLY - Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 7:00 at the Chatham Playhouse, 23 North Passaic Avenue, in Chatham. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door. Jeffrey Fiorello and Gus Ibranyi direct this evening's reading.

Deborah Brevoort based her 2003 poetic drama Women of Lockerbie on the terrorist attack. In the play, which was written with the structure of a Greek tragedy, a woman whose son died in the bombing discovers a group of women who are trying to collect the victims' clothing, which had been scattered across Lockerbie. They plan to wash 11,000 items as a symbolic gesture, but find resistance from a U.S. official. Brevoort won the Kennedy Center's Fund for New American Plays Award for her script.
