This week, I went to the H Street Playhouse to see a classic play but with a dark twist: “Peter Pan: The Boy Who Hated Mothers”.Â The play is being presented in DC by the No Rules Theater Company and adapted and directed by Michael Lluberes.
The play does a great job at exploring the original ideas and inspirations behind this iconic fantasy.Â “Peter Pan: The Boy Who Hated Mothers” tells the visceral story of the boy who wouldn’t grow up.Â This new Peter Pan will be a dangerous game of make believe, a dark exploration of the psyche of a child â€“ both a childâ€™s dream and nightmare and an examination of the relationship between mothers and children.
The cast did an amazing job for the period of two hours for which the play goes on. Â I felt like I was teleported into â€œNever Never Landâ€ and was 8 years old again playing imaginary games with Peter Pan, following his shadow.
You canâ€™t miss this world premier adaptation that will run from February 8 â€“ March 3, 2012, Thursday – Saturday evenings at 8:00 pm and Saturday – Sunday afternoons at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $10 – $25 at www.NoRulesTheatre.org.
