Lake Country Playhouse's drama, The Women of Lockerbie, by Deborah Brevoort, continues for a final weekend September 27-29 at the Historic Select Theater, 114 N. Johnson Street in Mineola. The play is set in the aftermath of the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 in December 1988. It tells parallel tales of a family's anguish at the loss of a son on the plane and the determination of four women from Lockerbie that an act of unspeakable hatred and horror be turned into an act of love by cleaning the clothing scattered across the Scottish countryside in an 850 square mile debris field. Directed by Jeannette Peel, the play is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate. Though the characters and situations in the production are purely fictional, it is loosely inspired by a true story.
Elizabeth Stricklin and Rodney Mize portray the American couple seeking their son. Playing the women of Lockerbie are Kimberly Martin-Ross, Kim Bond, Mandy Whitecotton, and Candace Brooks. The U.S. State Department representative is played by Ronnie Patrick.
Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinee beginning at 2 p.m. Admission is $12 for adults and $6 for students. For more information, call (903) 569-2300 or visit www.lakecountryplayhouse.com.
