On Wed. Dec. 21, 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 exploded in midair as it traveled from London to New York City. The explosion scattered pieces of the plane over 850 square miles of Lockerbie, Scotland, as well as the remains of the 243 passengers and 16 crew members. Twenty-one houses on the ground were destroyed, and 11 people there also lost their lives. 

Deborah Brevoort based her 2003 poetic drama The Women of Lockerbie on the aftermath of the terrorist attack. In the play, which was written with the structure of a Greek tragedy, an American woman whose son died in the bombing discovers a group of Scottish women who are trying to collect the victims' clothing, which had been scattered across Lockerbie. Their plan is to wash and return 11,000 items of clothing to the victims' families as a symbolic gesture, but they find resistance from a U.S. official.
