Wendy & Peter Pan
Published by Nick Hern Books
Large Mixed Cast
And in 2013 they offered a delightfully subversive spin on one the world's most-loved children's classics
Ella Hickson's version puts the character of Wendy firmly centre stage, in an adaptation that is refreshingly modern but never loses the charm of the original ...
It's Winter, 1909
Snow is falling across London
Wendy Darling and her brothers sleep peacefully in their bedroom while their parents bicker downstairs
Then in a sudden flurry of snow their window blows open ...
And into their lives tumbles a mischievous boy followed by a fractious fairy
With the aid of a little fairy dust, Wendy agrees to fly with Peter to Neverland, seeing not only the promise of an awfully big adventure, but also the chance to rediscover the key to her parents' lost happiness
Once there, she'll give the Lost Boys a run for their money
And defeat Captain Hook and his pirate crew
And ultimately learn what it means to grow up
This play will suit any theatre company or youth group looking to stage a classic tale that's full of magic and adventure and offers strong female roles
