Play Synopsis: A mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland, looking
for her son's remains that were lost in the crash of Pan Am 103. She meets the women of Lockerbie,
who are fighting the U.S. government to obtain the clothing of the victims found in the plane's
wreckage. The women, determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love, want to wash
the clothes of the dead and return them to the victim's families. THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE is
loosely inspired by a true story, although the characters and situations in the play are purely fictional.

Written in the structure of a Greek tragedy, it is a poetic drama about the triumph of love
over hate. Winner of the silver medal in the Onassis International Playwriting Competition and the
Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays award.
