"Marvelously subtle... A new and startling interpretation."
-Charles Kruger, TheatreStorm.com
"Engagingly explores the questions of innocence, friendship, family and loss that have made the story a classic for more than a century."
-Robert Sokol, The San Fransisco Examiner
"[The play's] commitment to the purest elements of theatre is refreshing, and commendable."
-Loren Noveck, NYTheatre.com
In this lyrical, atmospheric interpretation of Peter Pan, Jeremy Bloom strips the familiar story down to its emotional essence. Peter lures Wendy away from her nursery to the magical world of Neverland, where she joins his adventures with Tinker Bell, Tiger Lily, and the menacing Captain Hook. A low-tech, inventive adaptation that pays homage to the darker themes of J. M. Barrie's original, Peter/Wendy will mesmerize audiences of all ages.
