Peter Pan

“Neverland is your imagination, a map of your mind. If you play it by day it is all make-believe, but dream it at night and it’s very nearly real.”

Fantastical worlds and characters appear and vanish with a whirl of cloth, a well-spoken word or two, a light scattering of original songs and a little bit of fairy dust!


Peter Pan was Brave Bold Drama’s first full length show – commissioned by Keynsham Town Council as part of their Winter festival 2015.

Based on J.M Barrie’s classic novel ‘Peter Pan’ this show was devised and performed by Gill Simmons and Rachael Moon. Developed between September/October 2015, this adaptation was a celebration of creativity and imagination.

audience reviews

"My 4 year old was spellbound by this highly imaginative and extremely energetic production. It was amazing watching two people transform themselves in to the entire cast of ‘Peter Pan’ before our eyes . . . with a little help from a willing audience!”


“Captivating . . . the kids were mesmerised by all that was going on.”


“You have such a talent to keep those children engaged like that.
Not one of them lost interest for a moment.”


“It was so funny when Captain Hook kissed my Daddy!”


“I didn’t want it to end.”


“Beautiful and thoughtful production.”


“Imaginative original songs.”


“Excellent! Mesmorising! Creative! Enchanting!”


“Magical! Really held the children’s attention.”
