Final weekend for Lake Country’s latest offering


Lake Country Playhouse’s heart-rending drama, “The Women of Lockerbie” by Deborah Brevoort, continues for a final weekend at the Historic Select Theater in Mineola.

Set in the aftermath of the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 in December 1988, it tells parallel tales of a family’s anguish at the loss of a son on the plane, and the determination of four women from Lockerbie that an act of unspeakable hatred and horror be turned into an act of love by cleaning the clothing scattered across the Scottish countryside in an 850 square mile debris field.

Directed by Jeannette Peel, the play is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate. Though the characters and situations in the production are purely fictional, it is loosely inspired by a true story.

Elizabeth Stricklin and Rodney Mize portray the American couple seeking their son. Playing the women of Lockerbie are Kimberly Martin-Ross, Kim Bond, Mandy Whitecotton, and Candace Brooks. The U.S. State Department representative is played by Ronnie Patrick.

Remaining performances are Sept. 27, 28 and 29. Friday and Saturday curtain is 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinees starting at 2 p.m. Admission is $12 for adults and $6 for students. The box office will open one hour prior to the performance. Reservations can be made by calling the box office at 903-569-2300.

All productions by Lake Country Playhouse are performed at the Historic Select Theater, 114 N. Johnson Street, in Mineola.
