Courage: A Play Based on the Life of “Peter Pan” Author J. M. Barrie

June 14 & 15, 2024

In Courage, John Pielmeier tells the story of Barrie’s remarkable life in Barrie’s own words - from his relationship with his too-possessive mother through his friendship with the five boys who inspired his most famous play. Alternately humorous and heart-breaking, the author of Peter Pan reveals his own secret self by telling the stories of all the heroes he knew in his own life—the men and women he loved, the men and women he tragically lost.
