Peter Pan and Wendy is written by Alyn Cardarelli and Steve Goers, creators of the popular musical How I Became a Pirate. In this version of the classic tale of the boy who refuses to grow up, the character of Wendy takes on a more prominent role, as she, too, is having trouble coming to terms with pending adulthood and accepting life's responsibilities. Wendy wants to play, and Peter Pan is delighted to whisk her away to the magical island of Neverland where children stay children forever. With the help of Tinkerbell, the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily, and mermaids, Peter and Wendy battle the dreaded, but rather funny, Captain Hook.

The story of Peter Pan and the character himself are synonymous with flying. "We are using video to create the flying sequences. But, rather than filming the actors, we are creating abstract video that will be projected in all sorts of places around the stage, with the actors moving against it, in order to give the illusion of flying," says Bryer, Associate Artistic Director of Imagination Stage, describing the challenge of flying within the constraints of theatre.
