With a cast of 12 actors, starring Rachel

Hands, Helen Hobson, Jonathan Andrew Hume, Harry Morrison, Emma Salvo, David
Shannon and Cat Simmons, Come From Away tells
the true story of the air passengers who were grounded in Canada on 9/11 and
the Newfoundland people who welcomed them.
On 11 September 2001, 38 planes were diverted
to Gander International Airport in Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada,
carrying 6.579 passengers from 100 countries. The exhausted travellers were
welcomed by the residents of Gander and the surrounding towns, whose population was of about 10.000
people at the time. With no more that 550 hotel rooms available in the area,
foreigners and locals were forced to live together and to rediscover the power
of humanity in a time of darkness. From these true events, Sankoff and Hein
wrote a joyous new musical that tells a story of friendship, hope, trust and
