"The Lockerbie Bomber" at Stirling's MacRobert: a reminder

[The following is from the play’s producers:]

Now that we’re into August, a reminder that tickets for The Lockerbie Bomber are on sale at the MacRobert box office.

Controversial and heart-rending: The destruction of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie in December 1988 killed 270 people and was the worst terrorist atrocity in the UK. Now, for the first time, the horrific tragedy is brought to the stage in this new play which lifts the veil of secrecy thrown over the bombing.

“A few people, high up in the US and UK Governments, know exactly what happened, but they’re never going to tell us.”

"Sooner or later, to protect itself, the Scottish Government will have to cast the Crown Office adrift and abandon the fiction that Megrahi’s conviction is safe."

The cast is Carol Clark, Rhona Law, Jim Allan, Brian Paterson, Craig Murray and Alan Clark.

Some quotes from people who saw it in Falkirk in May:

“Brilliant, quite brilliant.”

“Chilling and intense.”

“It would make a great film.”

“I cried.”
