Alan Bennett
Alan Bennett brings to life the story of the Darling children and their trip to Never Never Land.

Into the night nursery of the Darling children flies Peter Pan, a motherless half-magical boy.

He teaches the children how to fly and whisks them through the skies to Never Never Land, a fantastical place peopled with mermaids, wolves, pirates and the dastardly Captain Hook.

There, with the fairy Tinker Bell and the Lost Boys the children experience a series of hair-raising adventures before flying home to their nursery and a reunion with their family.
1. Exactly one hundred years ago - on 27th December, 1904 - JM Barrie's play Peter Pan was given its first theatre performance. It was such a huge success that Barrie decided to publish the story in prose,  Peter And Wendy appeared in 1911.
 
2: Peter Pan and the Darling children are flying to the Neverland to meet the Lost Boys.

3: Adventures and pirates on the mermaids' lagoon.

4: The children are captured.

5: Will the children be able to return home?
