On December 21, 1988, an unimaginable tragedy occurred: a regular London to New York Pan-American flight fell from the sky over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing all 259 passengers and crew members on board. Though countless people lost friends or family members, the depth of the grief was perhaps felt most deeply at Syracuse University, which lost 35 students coming home from a semester abroad in London. Turbulence, written by BHS senior Cait Donahue and co-directed by Cait Donahue and senior Rebecca Perez, focuses on a group of Syracuse students after the sudden loss of their friend Nathan in the Pan-Am 103 crash. As each student wades through the weeks and months after the crash, each student’s different methods of grieving threaten to tear the fabric of their relationships apart and force them all to reconsider who they are, both as friends and as people. The show will run approximately 30 minutes with an audience talk-back to follow, though audiences should arrive a few minutes early to browse the casts’ visual exhibit about Elizabeth Kübler-Ross’ five stages of grief and a timeline of the Pan-Am 103 disaster.
Come see the 2019 Emerson Senior Project: Turbulence! The show will be performing Friday, Feb. 1 at 3:30 and 7:30 pm in the Black Box. Tickets are $5 for students, $10 for adults and free for BHS staff and 8th graders. Hope to see you all there showing support for our amazing student writers, directors and actors!
