On this day...




J.M. Barrie's popular children's character Peter Pan debuted as a stage play at the Duke of York Theatre in 1904. Having already appeared in novel form as a section of 'The Little White Bird' in 1902, the production has since been adapted numerous times for screen, stage and radio. Peter Pan and his fellow lost boys are all based on the children of the Llewelyn Davies family; children whom Barrie became the guardian of when both their parents died. A new 'breathtaking' production, first on at Kensington Gardens in the Summer, is currently on at the O2.
