Welcome to the Rock! The heart-warming musical Come From Away, based on an astonishing true story, invites you into the small town of Gander, Newfoundland, where you’ll find the very best of humanity in the worst of times. Book Come From Away tickets in London on TodayTix.
Irene Sankoff and David Hein’s Tony and Olivier Award-winning Come From Away musical takes us back to 9/11, when 38 planes were grounded in Newfoundland following the terrorist attack on America.
That meant a sudden influx of 7,000 international visitors, who were taken in and cared for by the kindly locals. Eternal bonds were formed in these extraordinary circumstances, from the friendship between two mothers of firefighters to a transatlantic romance.
The Come From Away London production began its popular run in 2019, and is due to finish in January 2023, so, “Stop the World” and visit with the fine folks of Gander, and you too can become an Islander. Book Come From Away tickets now on TodayTix.

All of the amazing characters in Come From Away are based on real people. Irene Sankoff and David Hein interviewed many of those involved during a visit to Gander on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, and some of their actual words are used in the show’s book and lyrics.
Those inspiring figures include the trailblazing pilot Beverley Bass, the first ever female captain of an American Airlines commercial plane, and who later captained the first all-female crew in commercial jet aviation history. She gives us that crucial pilot’s perspective on the tragedy, and expresses her feelings in breakout hit “Me and the Sky”.
Other larger-than-life characters include the heroic mayor of Gander, Claude, one of several Newfoundland mayors represented in the show, as well as SPCA worker Bonnie. The latter battles bureaucracy in order to care for all of the animals stranded on the planes – including a rare bonobo chimp.
Come From Away is directed by Christopher Ashley, the artistic director of California’s La Jolla Playhouse. His other work includes the Broadway musicals Memphis, Xanadu and Diana, and the Kennedy Center productions of Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd and Merrily We Roll Along.
