For Peter Pan on her 70th birthday

By Sarah Ruhl

Paperback £14.99

An elderly woman and her siblings become J.M. Barrie's classic characters in Sarah Ruhl's play about a family grieving over the death of their patriarch.

After their father dies, five siblings find themselves around the kitchen table of their childhood, pouring whiskey and sharing memories. The eldest, Ann, reminisces about her days playing Peter Pan at the local children’s theatre, and soon the five are transported back to Neverland.

Sarah Ruhl's play For Peter Pan on her 70th birthday is a fantastical exploration of the enduring bonds of family, the resistance to 'growing up', and the inevitability of growing old.

The play was premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in August 2017.
