The Women of Lockerbie takes place seven years after the 1988 disaster in which an American airliner was destroyed over Lockerbie, Scotland, apparently by a terrorist bomb. The Livingstons have come to Lockerbie for a memorial service that is being held for the families of the victims. They meet the women of Lockerbie who are determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love by washing and returning the clothes to the victims’ families. The Women of Lockerbie is a powerful and moving poetic drama—an affirmation about how the human spirit triumphs over evil.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a comedy play written by Christopher Durang. The story revolves around the relationships of three middle-aged single siblings, two of whom live together, and takes place during a visit by the third, Masha, who supports them. They discuss their lives and loves, argue, and Masha threatens to sell the house. Some of the show’s elements were derived from works of Anton Chekhov, including several character names, the play’s setting in a cherry orchard, and the theme of the possible loss of an ancestral home.
