FORGOTTEN – TWO ACT FANTASY PLAY FOR HIGH SCHOOL – what happened after Neverland?
Gwendolyn is a young schoolgirl plagued by recurring dreams of an imaginary place and time, not of this earth. Despite her best efforts to control her dreams, they are becoming more real and frequent than ever. But when she wakes up, she cannot remember anything at all, other than a fear of falling. When she sleepwalks and almost falls to her death, her school decide to send her home again. Once home she is sent to a specialist doctor for treatment to try to cure of of her mysterious illness that is causing her nightmares.
But it seems that the imaginary place is very real indeed. Gwendolyn is “Wendy” and she dreams of a very real Neverland. Peter Pan has left Neverland to try and find her, risking the lives of all the people who live there, including the infamous Captain Hook. For Neverland cannot survive without Peter Pan. Hook, desperate to save Neverland, and of course himself, has followed Peter back to our world to find Wendy and to make her forget once and for all.
“Forgotten” is an exploration of J.M. Barrie’s classic children’s story, “Peter Pan” and poses the question of whether it was simply a story, a figment of Wendy’s imagination or a real place. In the 21st century we are accustomed to the concepts of time travel and alternate universes. This fantasy play for high school cleverly switches between, so to speak, the alternate Earths in the story.
A fun play that mixes pirates and adventure with 1906 England. I thoroughly recommend it! Altaire Gural, the playwright is a member of the playwright’s guild of Canada.
