Description

The play is family-friendly.

About Pixie Posy
Fairies and wee pixies, like children, are both mischievous and sweet. Oft winged and ever in the wings. For there are realms and there are layers. Oh yes, and angels too, are there. Amongst the pipers, woodland creatures, and night-mares.

At times we are misguided. Hoodwinked, spun, and bent. By little hands of mischief, laughing as they went. And at times we are healed, by little hands of love (some cut-out and some real). The better angels of our nature, through offerings, revealed. Let us consider these wee little ones that have danced (and perhaps do dance) among us. Be a gathering. And turn that cloak, for fairy folks are in the oaks!
