The writer of a new play about
Lockerbie that opens on Saturday said the timing of
Mr Megrahi’s death is “utterly uncanny”.
Alan Clark’s drama “The Lockerbie Bomber”
is being premiered in Falkirk by Tryst Theatre. Members
of the “Justice for Megrahi” campaign will
be in the audience.
He said: “I wrote the play last summer and Tryst
have been working on it since January. The fictional
starting point was that Mr Megrahi had just died, and
as a result journalists attempt to lift the veil of
secrecy thrown over the case by the US and UK security
“It's unbelievable - fiction has eerily become
fact as the sad news of his death in Tripoli comes through.”
He added: “Many of the issues being discussed
today after his death are examined in detail in the
play which, for the actors and the audience, will now
have far greater poignancy."
“The Lockerbie Bomber”
will be staged in Falkirk Town Hall, Falkirk, on Saturday
May 26 at 8pm. Tickets, £7 and £5 (concessions)
are available from the The Falkirk Steeple Box Office
on 01324 506850, the Tryst Theatre Box Office on 01324
715886 or at the door on the night.
