About the Show

Eight complete strangers find they have more in common than they think. Stranded overnight at an airport, they meet a refugee forced to call the terminal his home and soon realize they need each other to get to their destinations. Inspired by a true story, Jonathan Dove’s Flight is a touching and deeply human dramedy all about what it means to make a real connection.

Performed in English with English captions projected above the stage.

Approximately two hours and 20 minutes with one intermission.

  • The refugee that lives in the terminal is inspired by a true story of a man who was not legally considered a citizen in any country, due to political conflicts. How might it feel to have no community to be a part of, except for an ever-changing group of travelers? How might a situation like this change the meaning of “home” and “community” and “connection,” from your point of view?
