Never ask a lost boy for directions!
New York – Music, magic mushrooms, Fairy Dust Beer? If Wendy Darling wanted an escape from her life in Jason Hookman’s office, she certainly found it with Pete and his band. Don’t judge her too much – working for the infamous art collector of Jolly Roger Publishing is no easy existence! For a nice girl who grew up too fast, with too much responsibility, a step back might be just the step forward she needs. Join Wendy as she explores her wild side on this journey of self-discovery that goes “straight-on till morning!”
The play – complete with original rock score - performed live - will make you laugh till you think!

Here’s what the critics have to say about Natalie Underwood’s play, Buckle Up, which also premiered at Under St. Mark’s:
“A stunning drama … This play will bring you too the edge of your seat, make you cry, break your heart, and then cause you to cheer in the end… Natalie Underwood does an amazing job of acting and storytelling.” – Calvin Roy
"Buckle Up is a play that pushes it's performers and it's audience. Part narrative and part confessional, Natalie Underwood brings unflinching honesty to a subject which is still sadly a cultural taboo. If you're ready to see an actress and writer bare her soul, then Buckle Up, because this is the play for you." - Brenton Lengel, Examiner.com
