CapeRace CFA: Gander Come From Away
In a heartbeat, 38 planes with 6,579 passengers were stranded in a remote town in Newfoundland. The locals opened their hearts and homes, hosting this international community of strangers–spurring unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances. On September 11, 2001 the world stopped. On September 12, their stories moved us all.
COME FROM AWAY is the breathtaking new musical that played record-breaking engagements in La Jolla, Seattle, Washington D.C Toronto and New York. Written by Canadians Irene Sankoff and David Hein, this is the stunning production from Tony-nominated director Christopher Ashley (Memphis) that the Los Angeles Times calls “an affecting and stirring new musical.” The musical takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that put their lives on hold and opened their homes to this world of strangers. Cultures clashed, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
CapeRace Cultural Adventures is offering a tour that will bring you into the town of Gander and lives of the generous hosts back in 2001.
