The show follows the story of Barrie from his birth in Scotland to London and the glittering Society of the turn of the Century. Barrie, through his writing, was already a rich man, married to an actress but childless. 'Peter Pan' was born out of his friendship with the Llewellyn-Davies boys, children he met while walking his dog, Porthos, in Kensington Gardens. This relationship was to last a lifetime. Of course, 'Peter Pan' was a huge success and made Barrie a fortune, but in his later years, he donated the rights of the show to
Great Ormond Street Hospital For Children, something they still hold now.
