Come from Away is a Canadian musical with book, music and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein.
Come From Away is based on the true story of when the isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland played host to the world. What started as an average day in a small town turned in to an international sleep-over when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe, were diverted to Gander’s air strip on September 11, 2001.
Come From Away is a new musical with the book, music, and lyrics by Canadian couple Irene Sankoff and David Hein. In 2011, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, David and Irene travelled to the small town of Gander, Newfoundland to listen to the stories of the townspeople and the Plane People during that fateful day and the following week. The characters of Come From Away are based on real people from both the planes and from Gander, with some being composite characters of multiple people – for example: Beulah Davis is a composite of Diane Davis and Beulah Cooper, two real people from Gander who volunteered to help. After being workshopped and first produced at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, in 2012 and 2013, the musical had successful runs at the La Jolla Playhouse and the Seattle Repertory Theatre in 2015.
