In 1956 John Osborne's Look Back in Anger changed the course of English theatre.'Look Back in Anger presents post-war youth as it really is. To have done this at all would be a significant achievement; to have done it in a first play is a minor miracle. All the qualities are there, qualities one had despaired of ever seeing on…
One of Willow’s dreams has come true: her forest home, a stone mansion called the Big House, has been refitted to become a safe haven, where wayward fairies can stay while their lives are transitioned to a new identity and location. The remodeling is done, the house scrubbed, the pantry full, and the staff in place. Everything is perfect.
Until the guests arrive, at least. Bumbles and Butters, Dragons and Wasps, oh my! (And there’s a Moth, too.) Not everyone thinks the household is so perfect, especially when they discover they’re expected to help with the work required to house and feed twenty-two fairies. Willow and her best friend Rowan have their hands full with complaints about the rooms, the food, and nearly everything else. When the tension boils over into vandalism, Willow has had “e-nough!” And her lover and fairy friend Noah has left her to cope alone while he tours Europe.
Willow enlists the aid of the security staff and her Airne friend Jasmine to catch the culprit. Suspicions and accusations fly as fairy tempers flare. This landlady stuff was not what Willow had been expecting!
