Five middle-aged siblings crack jokes, argue politics, and mourn their recently deceased father over a bottle of Jameson in their childhood home. Ann, the oldest, reminisces about her star turn as Peter Pan at the local children's theatre fifty years ago, and now leads her siblings on one final journey to Neverland as they confront growing old and growing up.
Recommended for ages 12+. Approximate run time is 90 minutes. There is no intermission.
Please note, this one-act play allows only one chance for late seating, at 15 minutes into the performance. Latecomers who arrive before then will be seated in easily-accessible seats.
Lively pre-performance discussions (and snacks!) provide a behind-the-scenes look into the play with Resident Dramaturg Gina Pisasale and a member of the cast. Add Scoop to your shopping cart for only $5 when purchasing For Peter Pan tickets, or purchase separately here.

"[Ruhl] takes audiences into Neverland and shows the grieving siblings finding solace in the power of theatre and the imagination — a place where realities dissolve and time isn’t linear."
"It's an excellent ensemble... Director [Abigail] Adams and her top-notch cast seamlessly guide the audience through Ruhl's story."
—Delco Culture Vultures
"Ruhl has established herself as a sly master of subverting the expected."
"Saunders imbues Ann with a wellspring of unforced levity."
"Tony Cisek’s slightly exaggerated sets, lighted by Dennis Parichy, capture the whimsical nature... Marla J. Jurglanis’s costumes allow the actors to shift effortlessly from real life to the realm of make-believe."
—Broad Street Review
