The Fairy Hoax

May 21, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

This is based on the true story of The Cottingley fairy hoax. “The Fairy Hoax, a magical musical for the whole family, is a coming-of-age story about Dulcie, a thirteen-year-old girl in Yorkshire, England, who fakes photographs of fairies in order to save her relationship with her emotionally distant mother, a relationship which has been torn apart by the First World War. With the help of Francis, an eccentric male friend, Dulcie manages to create a series of photographs that not only cheer up her mother, but also enchant a nation.  With the help of The Strand magazine, the children’s celebrity around the faked photos goes too far as Dulcie’s life becomes unbearable watching her mother go “round the bend.” And when she feels betrayed by her eccentric friend, Dulcie decides to stop all talk of fairies and give up her celebrity status in order to preserve what’s left of her family and her dignity.”

Written by Tom Diggs   Music by Jay D’Amico

Followed by a 15-20min. Intermission and Q&A Session
