"Peter Pan" (The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up) is a play for children by J.M. Barrie.
The story begins when Peter Pan visits the Bloomsbury flat of the Darlings. Peter Pan is a boy who ran away from home on the day he heard his parents talking about what might happen to him when he grows up. On arrival at the Darlings home, their dog frightened Peter, and he flies away but leaves his shadow behind.
Mr Darling is about to take his wife to dinner and chains their dog, believing that when Peter returns, he can find his shadow without any interruption from their dog. Peter Pan does return and Wendy Darling sews his shadow back on. Peter Pan teaches the three Darling children to fly. They fly and go to the Never Land, where he lives with all the lost boys, protected by a tribe of Red Indians.
Enter the villainous Captain Hook and his gang of pirates. One day, while Peter Pan is away, Captain Hook and his gang overcome the Red Indians. Wendy, who has become mother to the lost boys, is captured along with all her 'family.'
Peter arrives just in time to prevent Captain Hook from making them walk the plank, and defeats the villainous pirate in a duel. Peter sees the bad Captain Hook eaten by the crocodile that has stalked him for a long time. He then takes Wendy and her brothers back home. Mrs Darling offers to adopt Peter Pan but he kindly declines. A fun and exciting treat for children.
