The Death of Peter Pan


“To fall in love, really in love, would be an awfully big adventure…”

Fly On The Wall Theatre presents the critically acclaimed The Death of Peter Pan, an absorbing tale of suppressed desires, passions and profound love in a repressed Edwardian age.

Inspired by a true story, Michael Llewelyn Davies – adopted son of famed Peter Pan author J.M Barrie and inspiration for that character – finds himself swept up by the charms of the free – spirited and handsome Rupert Buxton.

Impulsive and uninhibited, Buxton embodies everything Michael has been looking for to challenge the foundations of his conventional life.

But as their bond deepens and becomes more powerful than they ever thought possible, the two young men make a decision that will fuse their destinies forever, shattering the lives of those around them.

A heart-wrenching tale of love, longing and lust in a stifled 1920s Eton, Britain and Paris, director Robert Chuter will reincarnate The Death of Peter Pan following his acclaimed 1989 production at the Universal Theatre and La Mama Theatre, a recipient of three Green Room Award nominations for best actor, best director and best production.

Barry Lowe is an acclaimed Australian playwright and fiction writer whose credits include: Homme Fatale, Relative Merits, The Barricade, Dragon Fly, Dutch Courage, Tokyo Rose and Seeing Things.
