1 – 16 November @ Old Mill Theatre, South Perth ·
Presented by Old Mill Theatre ·

An Australian premiere comes to the Old Mill Theatre this November. Written by Allan Knee and directed by Sarah Christiner, The Man Who Was Peter Pan was the basis for the Oscar-winning film Finding Neverland starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet.

The play tells the story of how JM Barrie was inspired to write the classic tale of Peter Pan after meeting four brothers, and their mother, in London’s Kensington Gardens one day. It dramatically changes his life and the show explores his evolving relationships with the boys as they grow into young manhood. The mother of the boys died when Peter Pan first hit the London stage and Barrie was appointed co-guardian with their grandmother.

The Man Who Was Peter Pan plays at 7.30pm on 1,2,6,8,9,13,14 and 16 November and at 2pm on 3 and 10 November. Tickets are $25, $20 concession – book at

The heritage-listed Old Mill Theatre is on the corner of Mends Street and Mill Point Road, South Perth (opposite the Windsor Hotel and Australia Post).
