Our 2014 Season
Wendy Darling by Robert A. Easton
Staged Reading, August 18, 2014
Directed by JC Carter
In the late 1800's, a very young Wendy Darling and her two younger brothers met the forever young Peter Pan who taught them to fly and took them to his Never-land where their subsequent adventures together have long since become worldwide legends. But in 1914 things are much different at the charming former home of the Darling family. Europe is on the brink of war. The three Darling children have long since grown up, but only Wendy remembers their time with Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. Mr. and Mrs. Darling have retired to the English countryside and left their London house to the care and discretion of their eldest child, Wendy, who is more than just a little reluctant to part ways with her childhood home despite strong arguments to the contrary from both her now grown up brothers (who have lost all their childhood whimsy and sentimentality) and her American husband, Liam (who fears he and his still all too sentimental English bride are growing too far apart). It seems Wendy and Liam are destined to part ways until news from Wendy's lifelong doctor and a visit from a certain boy-who-never-grew-up combine to bring them back together closer than ever before. Inspired by J.M. Barrie's classic story, this new one act play picks up more than a decade after Peter Pan ended and shows us Wendy Darling's struggle to join the adult world while still retaining the magic of her youth.
