The Families of Lockerbie archiveFor many, al-Megrahi's release was a grievous insult. For others, his original conviction was a gross miscarriage of justice. Whether it was a decision they welcomed or decried, al-Megrahi's release opened up a new chapter in the continuing ordeal of all of those bereaved by the bombing. This is a dramatic and compelling drama which doesn't set out to endorse one faction over another, but to document the anguished, often angry, search for justice that persists on all sides. Michael Eaton is an award-winning screenwriter with an impressive ability for dramatizing controversial stories. His credits include Why Lockerbie?, Shipman and Shoot to Kill. This powerful new play from local writer Michael Eaton explores the differing responses of the victims' families to the release, in August 2009, of Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, the man convicted of the bombing of the Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie in 1988.
