Peter Pan


or

The Boy Who Would Not Grow UP

A Fantasy in Five Acts

RSC

By J. M. BARRIE
Adapted by John Caird and Trevor Nunn

This was the first revival of the 1982/83 RSC production.  It opened at the Barbican Theatre on the 17th December 1983 and ran throughout the Christmas season. 

It was revived again at the Barbican for the RSC Christmas season of 1984/5.

The Adapters and Directors were greatly indebted to Andrew Birkin, the world authority on Peter Pan, for his invaluable help with the text.
