Peter Pan By J.M Barrie

Alyssa Collinsworth

“Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.”

I like this quote because it is true and expresses Peter's emotional attachment to certain characters. Peter doesn't want to see Wendy and the Darling children leave Neverland and also shows clear character development through this line and his interaction with the other characters.

I liked how the characters were created and developed. Almost each of the characters were developed individually without them controlling the storyline. I liked how scenery was described and used to add more to the story line. With each new scene change, came new characters and new action, which I liked because it engages the audience more. I also liked how the scene changes took place and how new characters were introduced. I also liked the interaction between the characters, especially Wendy and Peter Pan. I thought the interaction be Peter and Wendy was adorable and and amusing. The dialogue and action between the characters was interesting and didn't take away from the story. I also liked the ending, although it was a heartbreaking to see Wendy grow old and lose the ability to see and visit Peter Pan. I also liked Peter's humor and the residents of Neverland's ignorance about Mothers. The Lost Boys were also entertaining and added to the comedic storyline. I also thought Captain Hook's backstory was funny and actually added to the story instead of being distracting. I also liked Tinkerbell's attitude towards Wendy, and how either Peter Pan or the Lost Boys would translate what she said. There were not many things that I disliked about this play. One of the only things that I disliked about the plays was how sometimes Peter and the Lost Boys would treat Wendy. Because of how they determined her to be their Mother, and also how children treat their mother's, they sometimes treated her with disrespect.

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it."

I like this quote because it puts into words about experiencing losing hope. When you doubt whether or not you can achieve your goals, you might not ever actually achieve them. This line teaches the characters to believe in themselves and in Neverland.
