If you think about it, J.M. Barrie included a fair amount of backstory in the original version of his Peter Pan allegory, which arrived in 1904 as a play and in 1911 as a novel originally titled Peter and Wendy. We find out about the Lost Boys, Hook’s missing limb, and some of what makes Neverland tick. But there is a backstory to the backstory, thanks to a 2004 children’s book titled Peter and the Starcatcher and adapted in 2009 as a stage play with music that managed to snag a few Tony Awards in 2012. Set in Victorian England, and festooned with pirate lore, the drama omits Wendy, but introduces a young boy named Peter, an aspiring pirate named Smee, and a few other familiar faces. The University of Lynchburg presents the play tonight, tomorrow, and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. in Dillard Theatre (1501 Lakeside Dr.). Tickets are $15, $10 for seniors, and $5 for students. Click here for tickets or call (434) 544-8380.
