Furman Offers Haunting Staging of ‘Lockerbie’

Neil Shurley, contributor for The Greenville News, reviews Furman’s staging of Deborah Brevoort’s The Women of Lockerbie, a play based on the terrorist downing of Pan Am Flight 103 over the Scottish town in 1988 killing all 259 passengers and crew and nearly a dozen people on the ground. In a production Shurley describes as “not so much a narrative” but an “extended meditation,” he writes about how the characters “speak their feelings directly using heightened language, with a small “chorus” of women often echoing and overlapping each other as they offer comfort or support.”

He doles out credit to the director and  crew saying, “Director Tromsness is known for creating unique soundscapes and intriguing visual textures, … In a small, intimate space, Tromsness truly creates a sense of scale, a sense of the misty hills of Scotland, through Alan Bryson’s spare set, Margaret Rose Caterisano’s flowing costumes, Dakota Adams’ atmospheric lights, and J. McCabe’s memorable sound design.” Read more about the event, which runs through Nov. 20.
