Presented by Animal Engine
March 30 - April 1
"Dark, imaginative and well-acted."
"This polished, highly intelligent, desperately sad show will linger with you."
"Physical devised theater at its best."
Darlings re-imagines J.M. Barrie’s classic “Peter Pan” from the perspective of Mr. and Mrs. Darling, two parents struggling with the loss of their children. They search for them by day and tell stories about a place called Neverland by night … where the mermaids will drown you, the pirates might kill you, and you can’t trust the charming little boy with the impish smile.
Created and performed by Animal Engine Co-Artistic Directors Carrie Brown and Karim Muasher in collaboration with Katie Hartman and Nick Ryan of the Coldharts, with direction from Melinda Jean Ferraraccio.
