The free musical theatre festival returned to London’s Trafalgar Square this month, featuring a line up of performances from the West End’s biggest shows.

The critically acclaimed and award winning play shares the touching real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.
