The Women of Lockerbie 

When: Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Nov. 23
Price: $15-$20
Bill and Madeline are in Scotland for a memorial ceremony. Seven years have passed since their son was killed when the plane he was flying in exploded over Lockerbie, killing all aboard and eleven people on the ground. Madeline is convinced she may find a trace of her son in the Scottish hills where much of the wreckage fell, but Bill thinks she needs to lay aside her grief and move on, as he has. Deborah Brevoort's play The Women of Lockerbie is based on a real event, but filtered through the structure of a classical Greek drama. The titular women are a trio of locals who comment on the action and recount the horrors of that day when the sky exploded. The trio also explains the current crisis on the ground: The women of Lockerbie want to wash and return the clothing that was found in the wreckage, but the American government refuses to let them complete the symbolic act. Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble present The Women of Lockerbie at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday (November 6 to 23) at the Chapel (6238 Alexandria Drive; www.slightlyoff.org). Tickets are $15 to $20.
