Set against the backdrop of 1980s Northern Ireland and New York City, Away with the Fairies tells the story of one young woman’s quest to find love, adventure and happiness. To be away with the fairies, means that someone is not quite right in the head, and such is the case with Rosie Maguire. Rosie’s story is an old one: about the unfathomable capacity of one person to love another. Rosie lives to love and loves to live. Her story is both funny and tragic, encompassing Rosie’s journey from innocence to enlightenment. Rosie is in love with Jim O’Loan and believes she cannot live without him. She follows him to New York from her home in Ireland, where she finds she cannot live entirely with him either. Rosie’s inner conflict is exacerbated by homesickness and the thought of all she has left behind her in Ireland. Her friends and family, her ambitions and dreams are put on hold while Rosie embarks on her great adventure in New York. Also, in the background, always annoying her, taunting her and making her feel extremely confused is Sean O’Loan, Jim’s older brother. It will take a major trauma, a return home and a long time before Rosie is able to fulfil her dreams.
