I’m leaving the single-digit temperatures and multiple inches of snow and ice behind, as I head to Fayetteville, North Carolina for my next project!
In reality, the double-digits of Fayetteville are around 30…but 30 degrees feels nearly tropical compared to 5 degrees. And the sun is shining here in North Carolina, to boot.
My project is a new take on the Peter Pan mythos, “Pan: A Neverland Tale” by Jeremy Fiebig. It’s a clever and original story that incorporates J.M. Barrie’s childhood and the death of his older brother Davey (who inspired the character of Peter); a contemporary American teenager whose father is a solder lost in Afghanistan; and, of course, the inhabitants of Neverland. I’m really excited to start rehearsals and see what it looks like in three dimensions! It opens at the Gilbert Theater on January 31.
