Background to the Show's Creation
'The Faery's Kiss' was conceived and written in in the Quoddy Loop area - which comprises Canada and Maine overlooking the Bay of Fundy. The entire story was inspired by this marvelous coastal setting on a mountainside, overlooking a bay and an ocean and from the Celtic heritage that is so pervasive throughout the Maritimes and the Quoddy Loop region of Maine and Canada. Many of these wonderful, quaint rural areas have held much of its charm from the pervious centuries, and the archives of the regional towns have a wealth of photographs from early periods.

- There is a prequel to this story which is deeply rooted in lore and found in most of the compedia of Celtic Folktales. The playwright will not reveal the details except to a few cast members of this show to help them develop a strong backstory for their onstage work.
- There exists numerous reports by the regional native peoples of the Passamaquoddy tribe about 'liitle people' as well as other forms of faery sprites and similar entities.
