The Women of Lockarbie by Deborah Brevoort
This is based on the jagged coastline of Scotland
Attempting to handle grief
As the women confront the devastation that surrounds them, they recount the tragedy.
Costume detail of the women's coats and another woman looking on.
In the northern skies, a haunting display of beauty brings some hope.
She is driven by a grieving that takes over her soul and body.
Communal healing through the washing of clothes.
A decade later, the stains on the clothing represent the grieving of the community.
There is a sense of reconciliation and healing.
This play about the terrorist attack that blew up an airplane and devastated a Scottish village, is structured like a Greek tragedy. The women of the town form a chorus and a mother returns ten years after the event to search for her son's bones. Communal healing is found through the washing of the victims' clothing.
