The Death Of Peter Pan

Written by Barry Lowe
Directed by Robert Chuter

“To fall in love, really in love, would be an awfully big adventure…”


Fly-On-The-Wall Theatre presents the critically acclaimed The Death of Peter Pan, an absorbing tale of suppressed desires, passions and profound love in a repressed Edwardian age.

Inspired by a true story, Michael Llewelyn Davies (played by Kieran McShane) – adopted son of famed Peter Pan author J.M Barrie and inspiration for that character – finds himself swept up by the charms of the free-spirited and handsome Rupert Buxton (played by Jordan Armstrong). Impulsive and uninhibited, Rupert embodies everything Michael has been looking for to challenge the foundations of his conventional life. But as their bond deepens and becomes more powerful than they ever thought possible, the two young men make a decision that will fuse their destinies forever, shattering the lives of those around them.

A heart-wrenching tale of love, longing and lust in a stifled 1920s Eton, Britain and Paris, director Robert Chuter will reincarnate The Death of Peter Pan following his acclaimed 1989 production at the Universal Theatre and La Mama Theatre, a recipient of three Green Room Award nominations for best actor, best director and best production.

DATE/TIME: Wednesday 22 May at 8.00pm (followed by post-show drinks)
ADDRESS: Chapel Off Chapel, 12 Little Chapel Street, Prahran, 3181
