THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE deals with the shared effects from the tragic PanAm Flight 103 terrorist bombing in 1988 over Scotland. Set seven years following the bombing, the play explores the traumas experienced by an American couple trying to find any remains of their lost son, and a group of grieving Scottish women trying to get the American government to release the clothing of the dead.

American Characters:

  • Madeline Livingston (45-55)…obsessed mother from New Jersey desperately trying to find any trace of her lost son Adam.
  • Bill Livingston (45-55)…Madeline’s husband who has come to Lockerbie with his wife to attend a solemn vigil.
  • George Jones (35-60)…a U.S. Government official. He has been sent to shut down the memorial service and burn the 11,000 articles of clothing and personal items that survived the tragedy.

Scottish Characters: (a convincing accent is encouraged)

  • Olive Allison (50-65)…a no-nonsense woman who is the leader of the “Laundry Project”.
  • Hattie (40-60)…a cleaning lady at the warehouse. She provides the comic relief.
  • 4 Women (25-55)…they function as the support system for the “Laundry Project” and as a “Greek Chorus”.
