Nugget Theatre Company presents "The Lockerbie Bomber" by Kenneth N. Ross at the Edinburgh Fringe

Some reviews of “The Lockerbie Bomber”:

“Powerful and persuasive…an important and passionate play.”

- Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman

“A searing and soul-searching drama of international significance which dramatically shows how absolute power corrupts absolutely and how individuals and nations are diminished by the lies told in their names.”

- Dr Jim Swire

“This is a challenging and thought-provoking play that brings the human suffering and political chicanery behind the tragedy of Lockerbie to vivid and dramatic life. It should be required viewing for every Scot as a reminder of a disaster that has become an indelible stain on the reputation of Scotland and its justice system.”

- Iain McKie, Justice for Megrahi Committee

“The atmosphere is intense…and the play ends with the cast all on stage, simply standing and staring in silence at the audience for a long moment. There are no bows or curtain calls - Lockerbie is unfinished business.”

- Vronsky, Justice for Megrahi Committee

“The play struck me because it recalls the bombing of the aircraft in its vivid, horrific detail. But most of all, the script challenges the audience into thinking whether, beyond the odd newspaper headline, this could have been one of the grossest miscarriages of justice of our times.”

- Herman Grech, Times of Malta

“The unsettling production of “The Lockerbie Bomber” is uncomfortable to watch but Director Alan Clark presented a theatrical and visual piece of theatre that subtly blended the factual information with strong characterisation and storytelling.”

- Graham Parry
