Peter Pan

This classic adventure begins in the quiet home of the Darling children and ends up in Neverland with Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and a happy gang of boys and girls who never grow up. Danger, romance, magic and beauty appear and disappear like phantoms in a dream. Will these lost children stay lost or will they find the courage to grow up? J.M. Barrie created the character Peter Pan in a novel in 1902 and later a stage play titled Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, which premiered in London in 1904.
