Peter and the Starcatcher
by Rick Elice.
The play serves as a prequel to J. M. Barrie's Peter and Wendy and has been modified for the middle school stage by Heather Smith. Learn more about how Peter and the Lost boys came to Neverland and about the magic of “Starstuff” through the eyes of these beloved characters as well as some new faces.
You stop that right now. I won’t answer any such question. You’re leaning toward the sentimental and that’s all well and good for a boy, but the fact is we girls can’t afford to be sentimental. We must instead be strong. And when I marry, I shall make it very clear to this person – that sentimentality is not on the calendar. He will have to lump it or leave it. And if he should leave, I’ll stay a spinster and pin my hair back and volunteer weekends at the hospital. And I will love words for their own sake, like “hyacinth” and “Piccadilly” and “onyx.” And I’ll have a good old dog, and think what I like, and be a part of a different sort of family, with friends, you know? – who understand that things are only worth what you’re willing to give up for them.
