Wendy & Peter Pan is a re-telling of JM Barrie's novel Peter Pan and Wendy, created by playwright Ella Hickson. Barrie first wrote the story of 'the boy who wouldn't grow up', the lost boys and Neverland as a play in 1904.

To help you discover more about this adaptation and to explore writing through the ideas in Wendy and Peter Pan, Ella Hickson has created a fantastic Teacher Pack which includes activities on:

  • Adapting the Story
  • Creating Characters
  • The Theme of Death
  • The Themes of Girls

With extracts from her play, this pack provides a great way to prepare pupils coming to see the production but also contains creative writing strategies that can be used without seeing the play in performance. You can find the Teacher Pack and activities below:
