Custom Made Theatre Co. presents the west coast premiere of PETER/WENDY directed by Lab Alum Jeremy Bloom!
Adapted and Directed by Jeremy Bloom
from J.M. Barrie’s “Peter and Wendy” and “The Little White Bird”
featuring the music of The Books
The plight of Peter takes on new life in an anxiety-ridden, deadly adventurous world of love, fairy dust and twilight. The pajama-clad performers – an exuberant ensemble of lost boys, pirates, fairies, and mermaids – explore familiar text compiled from the J.M. Barrie novels, “Peter Pan and Wendy” and “The Little White Bird.”
“While researching Barrie’s novels for a different play,” said Bloom, “I was struck by how deeply exhilarating and dark the text is on a psychological level, beyond the animatronic and animated portrayals of the story we grew up watching.”
Bloom directs with a creative use of adaptation. The actors are warmly lit by bedside lamps against the lofted space of the cell using every inch of the multi-level indoor/outdoor stage. The entire piece is underscored by the acclaimed indie band, “The Books.”
