A Play by Rick Elice
With Music by Wayne Barker
Based on the Novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
The new Tony-winning play, based on the best-selling novels, upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan boy becomes the legendary Peter Pan.
An inventive theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors Roger Rees and Alex Timbers and written by Rick Elice with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair and the bonds of friendship, duty, and love.
A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, containing a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff – a celestial substance so powerful it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache – a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.
Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story of the Neverland you never knew to life.
