Come From Away
Book, music and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein
directed by Christopher Ashley
presented in association with La Jolla Playhouse

Musical. Based on an inspiring true story. September 11, 2001 was an ordinary day in isolated Gander, Newfoundland—until it wasn’t. Thirty-eight planes were diverted to its doorstep on that fateful day, making this small town unexpected hosts to an international community. The camaraderie that followed reminds us all of the power that comes from opening up your heart and your home.

  • Mild profanity.
  • Run time is approximately 100 minutes with no intermission.
