After Peter Pan left for Neverland, his sister weren’t so lucky. When imagination intrudes on their lives, no one can predict what luck, or violence, might emerge. A surreal drama about being forced to leave “never grow up” behind.

This story was written in reaction to the inherent violence in the original stage-play of “Peter Pan” questioning whether this is really a play meant for our children. In a world where nothing is explained the characters struggle to grasp onto any scrap of reality. The nightmare crescendos as we find that brother Peter has been dead for years and kept alive only in the imaginations of his family.
