The locals in a Scottish pub take us back to 1603 where renowned minstrel Thomas The Rhymer has set out to write his masterpiece--a heroic ballad of mortal derring-do. But when he is cursed by the Queen of Elfland with a tongue (and a quill) that cannot lie and confronted with a world that refuses to play by storybook rules, Thomas's heroic masterpiece seems determined to remain unwritten in this rollicking Scottish musical comedy.
Marrying Meg follows Thomas The Rhymer who chronicles the fate of 22-year-old Meg, still unmarried due to one of his rhymes about her admittedly large mouth. Meg's father, Sir Gideon, finds a solution in a young 16-year-old captured in battle. Will he marry Meg? Or be hanged for treason? All ingredients for the kind of "true story" Thomas The Rhymer has been looking for.
