Featuring a score by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, the musical tells the story of the unexpected community that formed when thousands of airline passengers suddenly became stranded in the small Canadian town of Gander, Newfoundland in the immediate aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks. Through the processing of unthinkable tragedy and culture clashes, the unexpected visitors and locals managed to form enduring bonds.
Sankoff, Hein, and Ashley are also at work on a film adaptation.
