Flight

Sarah spends her days in the airport, finding comfort in its organized chaos, forced anonymity, and careful security. Little does she know that beneath its clean and shining façade, the airport – like the world outside it – is littered with lives torn apart by loss. Caught in the crossfire of the airport’s lost souls, Sarah discovers there is no such thing as an innocent escape.

    A beautifully melancholy and unique slice of life. What a brilliant setting and use of that setting, and what vividly drawn and compelling characters. The scenes move briskly and, for such a quiet piece, it's filled with well-earned and surprising turns.

    A fascinating study of the human experience. Full of twists and surprises. The kind of play you’ll think about for a long time after the final blackout.

    A sad little gem set in Logan airport that's about missing much more than flights. Starts a bit offbeat and darkens. Well-written and thematically airtight.
