About Come From Away

Discover the remarkable true story of a small town that welcomed the world.

Winner of every major UK award for Best New Musical, Come From Away shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.

As uneasiness turned into trust and music soared into the night, gratitude grew into friendships and their stories became a celebration of hope, humanity and unity.

Awarded the Tony® for Best Direction of a Musical, Christopher Ashley’s production guides audiences through a colourful and spirited cast of characters, brought to life by Olivier Award winning writing team Irene Sankoff and David Hein.

When 38 planes, carrying 7,000 passengers, were diverted to Newfoundland after American airspace was closed, the small town of Gander nearly doubled in size. Taking passengers from these U.S. airplanes into their homes — and, more importantly, into their hearts — Newfoundland natives formed inseparable bonds with the people whom they called the “Come From Aways.” Based off the real lives and stories of the passengers, Come From Away finds humanity amid a horrific tragedy that shook the globe.

When 38 planes, carrying 7,000 passengers, were diverted to Newfoundland after American airspace was closed, the small town of Gander nearly doubled in size.

Book Come From Away tickets in London now, and witness this incredible show.

Though Come From Away musicalises the aftermath of the terrorist attacks that occurred in New York City and Washington DC, on Sept. 11, 2001 — and the heroic acts in Newfoundland, Canada, in the days that followed — its writers, Irene Sankoff and David Hein, call it a “universal story” of how “the world comes together” that can be appreciated by all. Therefore, they add: “We are particularly thrilled to be sharing this story with audiences in the UK and Ireland.”
