Lockerbie – Lost Voices (Elements World Theatre)

By | Published on Monday 5 August 2013

‘Lockerbie: Lost Voices’ is a triumphant tale of love and loss. The cast give seemingly effortless portrayals of the victims; Doreen McGillivray and James Bryce are incredible in their portrayal of a older married couple, stunning in their intimacy and realism, and a genuine joy to watch. The whole cast is so completely bewitching, that when the bomb hits, it feels so confusedly unexpected; you get the sense that these are such painfully unfinished lives. Yet in the wonderfully moving scenes after the explosion, the cast give us a sense of calm and finality, with some of the closure that such tragedies steal from us. A truly stunning piece of theatre.

Scottish Storytelling Centre, until 26 Aug (not 7, 14, 21), 7.00pm.
