Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up is the play which introduced the characters of Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Tinker Bell, Wendy Darling, etc. to a large audience. Peter Pan had appeared in J. M. Barrie's book The Little White Bird, but this is the work that became a sensation, capturing the public's imagination. It was followed by a reprint of Peter's first appearance, various print adaptations (including Barrie's novel Peter and Wendy), and eventually a whole series of other stage versions, films, etc.

The first performance took place on the afternoon of December 27, 1904, at 2pm.
