Jeremy Bloom's Peter/Wendy is like a bedtime story for adults. Seven actors in striped pajamas take on the roles of every Peter Pan character, performing the familiar tale of the boy who wouldn't grow up using hand-held lights, the simplest of sets and narrative movement. From the moment you step into the theater, you'll be drawn into Bloom's version of Never-Never Land. The hallowed cathedral space of The Gough Street Playhouse has been transformed for this production and your "happy thoughts" will go on stage with those of the other audience members to be used later to create the "pixie dust" that allows Peter and Wendy to fly.

We really enjoyed the show. The guy who played Franco was very very good. We also enjoyed the Russian character Max. My only wish is that after seeing those donuts and smelling the coffee I wish they would have offered us some. LOL
Quotes & Highlights
- "The play is like a human chemistry experiment that sets out to discover what will happen when a sullen, disappointed baby boomer opens himself up to a young dreamer… A rich vein of feeling runs through the drama." – Los Angeles Times
Tracy Letts, who won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for his epic, family drama August: Osage County, and is the author of the hysterically brutal Killer Joe, has shifted gears with this entertaining comedy.
In the Chicago neighborhood of Uptown, Arthur Przybyszewski runs the donut shop that has been in his family for sixty years. More content to spend the day smoking weed than running his business, Arthur hires a shop assistant, the young African-American Franco Wicks, who has both an unpublished novel and unpaid gambling debt. Their relationship is the crux of this heart-warming play, set in the heart of one of Chicago’s most diverse communities, which explores the challenges of embracing the past and the redemptive power of friendship.
