Come From Away

(1 hr 40 mins, no intermission)

On Sept. 11, 2001, following the terrorist attacks in New York City, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., 38 commercial airplanes were diverted to Gander, Newfoundland; when the 6,579 passengers landed, they found themselves stranded in a small town with a population half their size.
