UK AND IRISH PREMIERES ANNOUNCED FOR THE TONY AWARD-WINNING NEW MUSICAL COME FROM AWAY (10 JULY 2018)

The Tony Award-winning new musical Come From Away tells the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded air passengers during the wake of 9/11, and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. It will land in London for its long-awaited UK premiere at the Phoenix Theatre next year with performances from 30 January 2019 and opening night on 18 February 2019.

Prior to the West End, this heart-warming musical will have a limited engagement at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin from 6 December 2018 to 19 January 2019.

This joyous new musical recounts the incredible true story of how the residents of Gander, Newfoundland welcomed the passengers of planes from around the world. Cultures clashed, and nerves ran high, but as uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night and gratitude grew into enduring friendships. On 11 September 2001 the world stopped. On 12 September, their stories moved us all.

Canada's High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Mrs Janice Charette, said: "I could not be more delighted that Come From Away is coming to the UK next year. A story that captures the kindness and humanity of the people of Canada - and the people of Newfoundland and Labrador in particular - at a crucial moment in U.S. and global history. This show reminds us what good neighbours and true friendship is all about. Audiences in London are in for a treat."

Earning widespread critical and audience acclaim, the multi award-winning musical continues sold-out, record-breaking engagements on Broadway, and in Canada, with a 60city North American Tour launching in October in Seattle, an Australian production confirmed for summer 2019, and a feature film adaptation in the works.

The UK and Ireland cast for Come From Away will be announced in due course.

Book, music and lyric writers, Irene Sankoff and David Hein, said: "The humour, the music, and the infectious generosity of spirit of the people of Newfoundland inspired us to write this musical, however along the journey we discovered that this isn't just a Canadian story - it's a universal story of how, when faced with global atrocities, the world comes together to respond with kindness and cooperation. We are particularly thrilled to be sharing this story with audiences in the UK and Ireland."
