Over the years I have
written a dozen or more short stories. Currently I am
compiling a selection of these stories that will be
published later in 2009.
However, I have included one of my favourite pieces
that was created in the autumn of 2005. At that time I workshopped with Patricia
Andrews and the Basement Theatre group at the Arts and
Culture Centre to develop a play from a short story I
had written earlier.
Below is a link that will take you to the script of this
Development of this story - While living on the Burin Peninsula I heard many
folktales of Newfoundland fairies. It was often
rumoured that fairies would take humans and most
times they never returned. This is the tale of the
strength of a motherís prayers that forced the
return of her son from the fairy world.
