The Lost Boys

adapted from the novel by James M. Barrie

December 1–23, 2011

Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater

We love this story, and we are going to retell it on our stage again. The only minor difference is that it will not begin in a London townhouse but in a nearby senior assisted living center. It is not just young boys who never grow up, or middle aged boys who develop a syndrome, but old boys too, who are just as lost, young at heart, and likely to live in Never Land.

I know this from looking at the old boys around me and from looking in the mirror. We are also fearless, foolish, ardent in the pursuit of justice, and certain, as Peter is, that dying will be “an awfully big adventure.” We’d like the chance to play with mermaids, Indians, fairies and we are still ready to take on the pirates. I’m certain you will relish the chance to fly out the window with Peter, Wendy and a bunch of very lost boys.

The Lost Boys is a retelling of Peter Pan, by James M. Barrie--the script is an edited version of Barrie's famous novel, but the play is set in a veteran's assisted living center--so all the lost boys are rather old.
