Patti Veconi

Playwright and Theater Educator


Night of Neverland




7 f, 5 m, optional extras. All characters are adolescents.


Approximately 50 mins. without intermission
What happens when a slumber party game goes awry and the birthday girl is hypnotized into really believing she’s Peter Pan? Well, first a group of boys arrive to crash the party, then everyone becomes involved in a charade of Neverland characters, gender-bending their way to a cathartic battle scene in the lagoon trying to snap her out of it before her parents get home. A very fun play with lots of physical theater and stage combat; perfect for adolescents eager to explore character roles that are both funny and poignant.
