Come From Away

Bord Gáis Energy Theatre

Grand Canal Square, Dublin

11 June 2024 to 22 June 2024

Winner of four Olivier Awards including Best New Musical in London and the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical on Broadway, Come from Away shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland in the days following 9/11, and the small Newfoundlander community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives with open hearts.

Written by the married Canadian writing team, Irene Sankoff and David Hein, Come From Away was originally developed at the Canadian Music Theatre Project at Sheridan College. Irene and David were nominated for Tony Awards for Best Book and Score, Grammy Awards for Best Musical Theatre Album, and won the 2017 Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk awards for Best Book.
