Peter Pan

Inception:
Peter Pan’ was Brave Bold Drama’s first full length show – commissioned by Keynsham Town Council as part of their Winter festival 2015.

“Neverland is your imagination, a map of your mind. If you play it by day it is all make-believe, but dream it at night and it’s very nearly real.”

Based on J.M Barrie’s classic novel ‘Peter Pan’ this show was devised and performed by Gill Simmons and Rachael Moon. Developed between September/October 2015, this adaptation was a celebration of creativity and imagination.

Fantastical worlds and characters appeared and vanished with a whirl of cloth, a well-spoken word or two, a light scattering of original songs and a little bit of fairy dust!
