Today I return to my beloved home town and jump straight into the last rehearsals for The Life and Many Deaths of Peter Pan at the Seattle Fringe Festival. I am delighted to be reprising my role as Lady Cynthia Asquith, JM Barrie’s secretary and friend for the last 20 years of his life.
As his light wanes and the tick-tock of the clock winds down, the man who made Peter Pan is confronted by the shadows of his past. Eclipsed by his greatest creation and burdened with devastating loss, JM Barrie has forgotten how to fly. Dark and whimsical, tragic and joyful, silly and profound – this shadow play romps through the borders between true and make-believe, journeys back to Neverland, and invites us all to remember what we have forgotten.
If you are in Seattle, please let me share this little story with you!
