After meeting cute at a farmers’ market, Jenny and Tom spend one beautiful day together; then Tom disappears. Six weeks later, Jenny discovers that she’s pregnant and in the course of tracking down Tom, learns that he’s some sort of supernatural being who’s hundreds of years old (every time you meet a guy, he’s either married or immortal). Shannon Pritchard’s nonlinear play, based on the old Scottish ballad "Tam Lin," stays vague on the magic stuff. Instead we get semisatirical sketches of hipster hangouts and musings on love and modern life from a folksy busker who also serves as narrator. Though the script is unfocused, Jessica Fisch’s staging for Feast Productions has an appealing cast and a handsomely spooky set designed by Emily Tarleton. —Zac Thompson
