TCR and Brucemore Present For Peter Pan on Her 70th Birthday. Live and Outdoors at Brucemore’s Peggy Boyle Whitworth Amphitheater.
By Sarah Ruhl
In this moving, tender, and very personal play from Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee Sarah Ruhl, the longing for immortality of Neverland confronts the inevitable passage of time.
When Ann thinks of her father, she fondly remembers playing Peter Pan in her hometown theater in Iowa, particularly when he used to bring her flowers after the show. Now, 50 years later and from her father’s hospital room during his final moments, Neverland calls again, casting her and her siblings back to this faraway dreamscape. In this world of make-believe, now seen through the eyes of these adults, there is still magic and wisdom for the young at heart.
