WINNER! BEST MUSICAL ACROSS NORTH AMERICA
CRITICS’ PICK – NEW YORK TIMES

As it continues sold-out, record-breaking engagements on Broadway, across the USA and in Canada, Come From Away will land in Dublin for its long-awaited European premiere, ahead of its West End transfer.

This joyous new musical shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.

As uneasiness turned into trust and music soared into the night, gratitude grew into friendships and their stories became a celebration of hope, humanity and unity.

Awarded the Tony® for Best Direction of a Musical, Christopher Ashley’s production guides audiences through a colourful and spirited cast of characters, brought to life by Tony® and Grammy® nominated writing team Irene Sankoff and David Hein.
