You Are Here - A Come From Away Story is an intimate feature documentary that goes deep into the community of Gander, Newfoundland where 38 airliners carrying over 6,500 passengers were forced to land after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. While the stories were the inspiration for the extraordinary Broadway hit musical, Come From Away, the documentary, You Are Here, reveals first-hand accounts of the great kindnesses resourcefulness the community showed their unexpected guests. We will be joined by Diane Davis, one of the teachers at Gander Academy who responded to the needs of passengers on 9/11. She is now retired and travels with Come from Away when invited for show openings. After the screening, she will talk to us about her experiences and will answer audience questions.

Events & Programs

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Shakspeare By The Sea

CORIOLANUS
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Mallory Fisher

This production marks Artistic Director Mallory Fisher's directorial debut with the company, and will broaden the appeal of Shakespeare by re-examining one of his lesser known and infrequently staged plays—Coriolanus—in a contemporary context. Set in present-day Newfoundland, the production will underscore the play’s extant themes of corruption of power, instability of capitalism, desensitization to violence, and toxic masculinity to examine our current political and social zeitgeist.

Tickets: $25 (general admission), $20 (students, seniors, unwaged)
