Courage: A Play Based on the Life of “Peter Pan” Author J. M. Barrie

Patricia Neal Stage

“To be born is to be wrecked on an island.”

So said J.M. Barrie, the most successful English-language playwright of his time. In Courage, John Pielmeier tells the story of Barrie’s remarkable life in Barrie’s own words – from his relationship with his too-possessive mother through his friendship with the five boys who inspired his most famous play. Alternately humorous and heart-breaking, the author of Peter Pan reveals his own secret self by telling the stories of all the heroes he knew in his own life—the men and women he loved, the men and women he tragically lost.

JOHN LEONARD PIELMEIER began his career as an actor and then shifted to writing with the play and movie Agnes of God, followed by three more plays on Broadway and over twenty-five produced television movies and miniseries. His adaptation of William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist is New York-bound, and his adaptation of his own novel Hook’s Tale—the Peter Pan story told from Hook’s point-of-view—premiered in Houston. He has received the Humanitas, Edgar, Camie, and Christopher Awards, five Writers’ Guild Award nominations, and his projects have been nominated for the Emmy and Golden Globe.
