Storyline

This version establishes a dramatic connection with Great Ormond Street, the world famous children's hospital that has become irrevocably associated with Peter Pan. The story will be retold through the imagination of a young girl named Lucy who is about to receive hospital treatment for a serious heart condition. This is Lucy's version of Peter Pan, the startling fantasy of a brave, imaginative and utterly modern young girl who fears her illness might mean that she, like Peter Pan, may never grow up. Lucy dreams this version of Peter Pan into existence after reading the novel late on the night before her operation, when her weakened heart is already beginning to fail. This is why she identifies with it so deeply, why her imagination works upon it so powerfully - and why we care so much about her story. Written by Anonymous

Multileveled Narrative Connecting Great Ormond Street Hospital with the Barrie text
24 January 2016 | by l_rawjalaurenceSee all my reviews

Set in the contemporary era, Diarmuid Lawrence's production opens in Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, where Lucy Rose (Hazel Doupe) is about to undergo a heart operation. Her mother Julie (Laura Fraser) is quite naturally apprehensive about what will happen, but kindly orderly Jerzy (Bjarne Henriksen) consoles her. With little or nothing to read, Lucy asks Jerzy to help her; he takes her to the Hospital's museum and gives her a copy of PETER PAN. Initially dismissing it as "kid's stuff," she eventually volunteers to read the book out loud to a group of children, who end up being captivated by the story.

There follows a largely faithful retelling of Barrie's tale with the added dimension of Lucy's operation to hook our interest. The stories are linked by Stanley Tucci who plays three roles - Captain Hook, Mr. Darling, and Dr. Wylie, the surgeon in charge of the operation. The device works extremely well in emphasizing the connection between the Hospital and Barrie's story (Barrie bequeathed the rights to the tale to the Hospital), as well as emphasizing the importance of the tale to take children's (and the narrator's) minds away from unpleasant realities and create instead a fantasy-world in which people never grow up. Barrie originally told the Pan stories orally as a means to compensate for personal tragedies; Lucy rehearses precisely the same role.

The narrative unfolds at a brisk pace, with the emphasis placed on Peter's (Zak Sutcliffe's) naivété; despite his bravado, he is quite simply a little boy lost, needing Lucy/Wendy's protection on his journey through the Never-Never Land. Tucci plays Hook with lip- smacking relish, but he is shown to be equally naive; his dislike of children owes a lot to his turbulent childhood when he was sent away to school by an unloving family. He needs Wendy as much as Peter.

There is perhaps only one jarring note in an otherwise charming production: Paloma Faith's Tinkerbell is apt to use the kind of bad language that some families might consider inappropriate for their offspring. It is not really necessary, and eventually becomes rather irritating.

Eventually the story ends happily for Peter, Wendy and Lucy. Although we mortals have to grow up, we can nonetheless exercise the power of our imaginations to project ourselves into that world where fantasy and reality are one.
