Peter Pan and the Darlings

"Second to the right," said Peter, "and then straight on till morning."
"What a funny address!"

-J.M. Barrie

About the Piece
The Text Used

Every boy wants to be Peter Pan, or one of his Lost Boys. I grew up in a childhood of the Lost Boys cavorting on screen inĀ Hook, while kids sang "I don't want to grow up" in television toy store jingles.

As an adult, Pan is almost a tragic feature, isn't he? He won't accept any responsibility, even in pretend, and in the end he is left alone.

This is the most hopeful moment in the story, where Peter shows the Darlings they can do anything at all if they just wish and believe (and receive a little sprinkle of fairy dust).

The image of Peter Pan and the Darlings is formed with the entire text of Peter and Wendy, Chapter three: "Come away, come away" by J.M Barrie.
