COUAGE

Adapted by John Pielmeier from the writings of J.M. Barrie

Presented by special arrangement with Playscripts Inc.

ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

 

Inspired by an address given by J.M. Barrie to the students of St Andrew's University in Scotland 1922, this is an intimate look into the life of the celebrated writer. Instructing the students on how to go about living the "courageous life", Barrie speaks with regards to the heroes that he has known during his lifetime, each an example of courage in the face of adversity. He tells of his youth, of his bed-ridden and emotionally demanding mother, of his career and tragic marriage and of his remarkable friendship with the five Llewelyn Davies boys that would lead to his creation of Peter Pan.

This one-man show, which is written using Barrie's own words, is charming, often moving and truly inspiring! Presented by the same creative team that produced The Importance of Being Oscar for the WOW Festival in 2014 which received a standing ovation!

Ross Muir returns to the stage as J.M Barrie, directed by Mitch Jenkins and designed by Laura Kimber.

“Ross Muir returns to deliver another mesmerising tour de force solo performance. This time he pays homage to another great literary figure – Sir J M Barrie.....Muir’s characterisation is incredible as he captures the spirit of the man.”
(The Argus, Brighton)

★★★★

“Muir’s performance was one of great light and shade, recounting moments of deep sorrow with a quiet dignity, alongside moments of levity which had the audience chuckling.”

(Ingenue Magazine)
