Peter Pan, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up (1904)

Created by

Notes

  • In the original stage direction of the play it is stated that "She will probably be played by a boy, if one clever enough can be found, and must never be on two legs except on those rare occasions when an ordinary nurse would be on four."
  • The Peter Pan play is not public domain in England or the United States. Special legislation was passed that gave the play a perpetual copyright. The characters, however, are public domain (as are the novels).
