We all think we know the classic children’s story of Peter Pan: the boy who never grows up, Captain Hook, Tinkerbell, Lost Boys, and a hungry crocodile. Well, that is NOT this show!
Jeremy Bloom’s adaptation of the classic J.M. Barrie tale digs deep into the darker side of Neverland, breaking the story down into its most essential and imaginative parts, and creating a much more adult exploration of the psychology and meaning underlying one of the most famous “children’s” stories ever told. Our final show of the 18-19 Season is decidedly not for children, but instead is a uniquely Bag&Baggage exploration of one of the great classics of Western literature.
“Engagingly explores the questions of innocence, friendship, family and loss that have made the story a classic for more than a century… a new and startling interpretation!”
– Robert Sokol, The San Francisco Examiner
