"Peter Pan has been my favourite story since I first encountered it at age four or five," Sarah said. "It's been a dream to play Peter on stage but I'm perhaps too old for that now.
"When Finding Neverland came out in 2004, I quickly found out it had been inspired by The Man who was Peter Pan. I was in high school then but tucked this fact away and recalled it when I was first thinking about plays to direct in 2014, so it's been a work-in-progress over the past five years.
"This story means a lot to me and I'm delighted to have such a strong team working with me to bring it to life. I hope Mr Knee would be pleased with our interpretation and efforts."
"After the death of his mother, Peter grows distant to his brothers and resents his new guardian. His loses everyone he loves and cares about and, by the end of the play, is left alone with the man whom he believed ruined his life.
"But Peter comes to realise it wasn't his guardian's fault and forgives him. The main challenge is conveying the character's ageing and quickly flipping his emotions in certain scenes."
