Featuring Sarah Ruhl’s mother, Kathleen Ruhl, surrounded by the SGT Ensemble.
In this moving, tender and very personal play from Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee Sarah Ruhl, the longing for the immortality of Neverland confronts the inevitable passage of time. Five siblings – 2 doctors, 3 Republicans and 1 teacher of rhetoric – move from their father’s hospital bed to a Jameson-fueled kitchen table wake, and then head for the “second star to the right and straight on until morning” (J.M. Barrie). In this world of make-believe, now seen through the eyes of these adults, there is still magic and wisdom for the young at heart.
