To Die Will Be An Awfully Big Adventure
The Midnight Horrors, Midsumma Festival, Theatre Works, St Kilda, 2024

A pirated reproduction of Peter Pan/s (1904-2023)

The Midnight Horrrors X the Peter Pans (Barrie, Disney, Mary Martin’s made-for-TV movie, et al).

A DIY bedtime thriller. A lawless inventory of regression. Using pulleys, wire, Happy Thoughts™ and wrapped in gold foil emergency blankets the performers repurpose scenes, chapters, and a memory of an island that doesn’t exist.
