This show moved me. You might say: it's about parents of a son lost to the infamous PanAm flight 103 bombing in 1988, how could it not move you? The play is written with craft and consideration, personalizing it. One couple, Americans visiting the Scottish town where the wreckage landed, display the distortions grief can work on a marriage, where the one who chooses to be the "rock" denies himself his true feelings, and the other falls further than she might, in balance. And the townspeople -- who ever thought of what they saw? The explosion happened high above, but the wreckage and the bodies landed right where they lived. They too suffer. The grief, the coping, the love of spouse and stranger are all excellently portrayed. There is a touc... full review

The show is presented as a Greek tragedy, and very skillfully designed and executed. It brought us, and we’re sure other audience members, to tears, and is the best thing we have seen at Fringe thus far, truly worthy of the Top of the Fringe award.... full review

A solid piece of theatre that resonates with its audience, bringing a sense of catharsis to anyone who has dealt with loss and grief (and who hasn't?). Director Jim Blanchette takes a script that could easily be heavy-handed and presents it with a perfect balance of subtlety and power in all the right moments. He's helped by a cast of insanely talented stage and screen professionals, who breathe soulful life into these characters and share not just their pain, but also their journey through it. It's beautiful to watch. ... full review

#SeeItLA The Women of Lockerbie is a moving modern-day story of grief and healing, as told through Ancient Greek traditions. This form of story-telling works amazingly well not only for this story, but for a Fringe festival. With a simplistic set and no scene changes needed, the actors were able to control the pace to strategically tell their story. The three main women from Lockerbie serve as the Greek chorus filling in needed background information and adding their own experiences to flesh out the story.

In the distant past of 2007, Casey writes fanfiction for the hit Alfie Wunderkid series of books. She writes really, really, really bad fanfiction. On purpose.

Actor and comedian Tobin Mitnick dives into the grotesque and hilarious world of online grifters with sketch and stand-up in order to show us that the game may have changed, but the players are all still here.
