This is a play I wrote and directed for my school, it's basically a modern take on the classic Peter Pan tale although this story begins when Wendy is telling the story about mothers (which originally comes later in the book). I hope you enjoy!


5. Scene 5: The children escape


The children are all in a salute line, and Wendy is standing at the top of the line. They have war paint on their faces and their hair is backcombed.


Wendy: So you all know the plan, right?


Children: Right!


Wendy: And remember, if you see one-person struggle, carry on. We need as people as possible to come out the other side.


Children: Right!


Wendy: So, let’s go!


One by one the children creep of stage in canon, until Michael is the only one left on stage. He looks around, confused.


Michael: Wendy? John? Hello? Anybody!


Cookson enters the stage and sneaks behind Michael. He grabs him by the waist and calls.


Cookson: Hey, Hook! The kids have gone, the kids have gone!


Hook: (Running onto stage) What, when, where, where, Cookson!


Cookson: I don’t know, sir, this is the only one left!


Michael: I want Wendy! Let me go! I want Wendy!


Smee: (Running onto stage with Noodler and Skylights) What seems to be the problem, sir?


Hook: The damned kids have gone, that’s what. Find them, or you’re sacrificed to the golden gun!


Noodler: That’s hardly fair, sir!


Hook: (Grabbing Noodler by the collar) To be perfectly honest, Noodler, I couldn’t care less what’s fair or not! Now since you’re so concerned for stupid Smee’s life, you can help him, and die with him, if that what come’s to be.


Skylights: (Looks distressed) But Sir…!


Hook: But nothing. I’m done here! (Storms out of the room).


Skylights: Noodler! Don’t go! I couldn’t bear it if you got shot!


Noodler: Don’t be so soft, Skylights! If Smee’s going, so am I.


Smee: Well we’d better get gone, then. I don’t fancy having me head blown off just yet.


Noodler: Bye, Skylights. Stay out of trouble. (Smee and Noodler exit stage.)


Skylights lifts a hand in farewell, and exits stage, shaking his head.
