DARLINGS at Dixon Place


Animal Engine Theatre Company uses art-making as healing practice in free performance of DARLINGS. Mr. and Mrs. Darling's children are lost. By day they search for them through the rain-soaked streets of London; by night they tell tales of a place called Neverland, where mermaids, pirates and a flying boy all spell danger. Will this fantastical world consume them? A re-imagining of "Peter Pan" from the perspective of the parents. Darlings is a meditation on loss, grief and the healing process that occurs through the stories we tell: a playful re-imagining of J.M. Barrie's classic "Peter Pan" from the perspective of Mr. and Mrs. Darling, two parents struggling with the mysterious loss of their children. The performance is paired with a 20-minute post-play small group reflections led by experienced facilitators, as well as a lobby display highlighting the work and stories of creative arts therapists. Recommended for ages 10 and up. Free with pre-registration.
