Before 9/11, there was Lockerbie.
Oakland University’s first interpreted show of the season (there will be three this year) is ‘The Women of Lockerbie.’ This moving play is based on the true story of the aftermath of the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988. The untold story of what happened on the ground after the plan crash is unforgettable.
OU’s amazing theatre department has begun rehearsals on the show, and TerpTheatre joined for our first rehearsal this week. We plan to update you throughout the rehearsal process, with blogs about costumes, the set (real grass!), the rehearsal process and more. Look for more in the weeks ahead!
Danny McDougall, PhD, CSC — “Dr. Danny” — owns and manages TerpTheatre. Since 1986, he has interpreted in hundreds of plays, musicals and other performances on stage – most in the shadowed style. He teaches and lectures on the theory and practice of theatre interpreting. Danny is the chair of Sign Language Studies at Madonna University, and holds a PhD in Translation and Interpretation from Heriot-Watt University – where his dissertation explored the relationship between space and meaning during interpreted theatre performances.
