The ‘Lockerbie Bomber’ (Nugget Theatre Company)

By | Published on Saturday 3 August 2013

The bombing of an airliner bound for New York over the town of Lockerbie in 1984 is an event etched into the national memory. Nugget Theatre Company present a poignant new take on that fateful night and the events which followed. Compelling and persuasive, this piece of new writing, which dares to question the official story of Lockerbie, is executed well by all performers and although there were a few jarring dropped cues, this did not detract from the strong writing and committed acting. Carol Clark, as the mother of a child victim of the bombing, should be commended for an extremely emotive performance resulting in none too many dry eyes. Though not the comfortable viewing that some Fringe audiences may seek, the piece is a thought-provoking and refreshing watch.

C, until 13 Aug, 12.00pm.
