The Man Who Was Peter Pan was the basis for the Oscar-winning film Finding Neverland starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet. The play tells the story of how JM Barrie was inspired to write the classic tale of Peter Pan after meeting four brothers, and their mother, in London’s Kensington Gardens one day.
It dramatically changes his life and the show explores his evolving relationships with the boys as they grow into young manhood. The mother of the boys died when Peter Pan first hit the London stage and Barrie was appointed co-guardian with their grandmother.
