Comes a Faery: The Break-Away Readings Act IV

The Break-Away Project presented a staged reading of ‘Comes a Faery’ by James McLindon.

The Play

“A single mother deployed overseas in an endless war. Her little girl left with a less-than-willing aunt. A cantankerous Irish fairy who may or may not have escaped from a favorite storybook. Has he come to keep the lonely child company … or steal her soul?”
