About Peter Pan

Working in collaboration with Baltimore’s LGBTQ+ residents and service organizations, SCT will create a new adaptation of the familiar favorite that includes contemporary conversations on gender, sexuality, and performative identity. Neverland is transformed from a distant fantasy to a modern safe-haven for those who have been rejected and devalued, a stronghold against normalcy and a place where Peter and his Lost Boys can finally be themselves.
