“Do you know why I come here, Wendy? I come here to hear stories,” declares Peter Pan, the fearless boy who refuses to grow up and the protagonist of Peter~Wendy, an adaptation of the fanciful childhood tale, to be performed November 5 through November 8 at walkerspacein TriBeCa.
Conceived and directed by Jeremy Bloom (Leaves of Grass at the Cell), the plight of Peter takes on new life in an anxiety-ridden, deadly adventurous world of love, fairy dust and twilight. The pajama-clad performers, an exuberant ensemble of twenty lost boys, pirates, fairies, and mermaids, explore familiar text compiled from the J.M. Barrie’s novels, “Peter Pan and Wendy” and “The Little White Bird.” Featuring Bloom’s signature low-tech, inventive image staging, Peter~Wendyreveals the nuances of Neverland.
