Comes a Faery
by James McLindon
Comes A Faery is a drama with a lot of comedy in which a single mother has been unexpectedly deployed overseas. Her little girl, Siobhan, left with her less-than-willing aunt, has one friend: an irritable Irish fairy, Seaneen, who may have escaped from the little girl’s favorite storybook … or who may be there to steal her soul. Over the course of the play, Siobhan slowly deteriorates: fighting in school, stealing, engaging in pyromania. Seaneen eggs her on, convincing her that if she is truly wicked, the army will have to send her mother home to deal with her. Terrified of parenthood’s relentless responsibilities and unsure when her sister will return, Katie asks her mother to take Siobhan. Seaneen asks Siobhan to run away to live in the land of Faery. But whether he plans to save her or steal her soul, and whether Katie will give Siobhan up to Katie’s mother, are only revealed in the final terrifying moments.
