Photo Flash: New Shots from AstonRep's THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE

AstonRep Theatre Company continues its 2015-16 season with the Chicago premiere of Deborah Brevoort's moving drama THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE, directed by Artistic Director Robert Tobin*. Inspired by events following the infamous 1988 terrorist attack of Pan Am Flight 103, THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE plays now through May 8, 2016 at The Raven Theatre (West Stage), 6157 N. Clark St. in Chicago. BroadwayWorld has new shots from the show below!

THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE features Alexandra Bennett*, Jeff Brown, Barbara Button, Lorraine Freund, Amy Kasper*, Ray Kasper*, Morgan Manasa, Sara Pavlak McGuire* and Hayley Rice.

Inspired by a true story, this moving drama follows a group known as the Women of Lockerbie - determined to turn an act of hatred into an act of love. The story begins with a couple trying to gain closure after the death of their son in the terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. They meet the Women of Lockerbie, who want to wash the clothes of the dead and return them to the victims' families. THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate - amid one of the first tragedies of terrorism that shaped the world we live in.

The production team for THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE includes: Jeremiah Barr* (set design/technical director), Uriel Gomez (costume design), Samantha Barr* (lighting design/production manager), Robert Tobin* (sound design), Arielle Valene (props design), Kendra Kingsbury (dialect coach) and Lara Caprini (stage manager).
