“Tomorrow is something I’ve been too afraid to face. Because what is left tomorrow is one day less than today.”

After another amazing season, with amazing work onstage, with amazing audiences, who were in turn….amazed in 2015, What Dreams May Co in partnership with Queens Shakespeare Inc. again shines the looking glass onto 2 of literature’s most famous characters, who on the surface appear to be complete opposites. One, a certain boy who will never grow up. The other; one of Shakespeare’s kings who has grown quite old. Yet they both seem to suffer a clear case of “Peter Pan Syndrome”; flying about from place to place, searching for a mother, and oblivious to the destruction they leave in their wake.  Join us for a season of flying, fighting, and crowing in the Spring and then in Winter make way for a very crazy, cranky King….or Queen (wink wink…nod nod) First up: The Terrible Tragedy of Peter Pan.

A reimagining of the classic children’s story adapted from the original J.M. Barrie play, The Terrible Tragedy of Peter Pan casts adults in the roles traditionally played by children. And explores through this new lens, what it really means to never grow up. Director Christina Sheehan’s sparse yet gritty design, institutionalizes each character in a way that lets us look into their psychology as we watch each “play” through their individual psychoses. A world made of “faith, trust, and fairy dust” that makes us ask ourselves are we in Neverland, or is Neverland inside all of us?

Please note:  The Terrible Tragedy of Peter Pan is recommended for ages 13 and up. For more information on the production contact Jonathan Emerson at jonathanemerson2000@yahoo.com or visit www.wdmcshakespeare.com/
