Tam Lin

A New Play by Laurel Andersen
Directed by Regina Renée Russell

TAM LIN, a new play, loosely inspired by the Scottish folktale of the same name, is an epic, queer fantasy-romance in the spirit of 80s adventure movies. Edinburgh, Fall 1987. It’s Halloween Night. Janet is a young woman waitressing in a pub to help settle her missing father’s debts when her friend and coworker, Maire, is spirited away to Faeryland. To save her, Janet must navigate a strange and dangerous new world, face all manner of creatures, and — ultimately — choose love over fear. TAM LIN  uses its fantasy setting to examine how change, fear, and love can shape our choices — and how we imagine ourselves and each other.

Content warnings: Violence, (mostly fantasy-violence/magic), implied torture, death, fear, drink spiking/drugging, brief mention of disease/plague
