    A play about not growing up and a life spent in make believe? Sounds like the Belvoir folks are getting self-referential and thumbing their noses at detractors with their production of Peter Pan, which comes complete with an ensemble cast of theatre's cheekiest.

    The poster boy for never-ending youth with the sociable habit of flying into strangers' windows will be played by Meyne Wyatt, who has brought a contagious energy to each show he's done from Silent Disco to Buried City and was most recently seen in the hit film The Sapphires. Charlie Garber, John Leary, and Geraldine Hakewill are his allies in Neverlandian adventure.

    The team claims to have been struck by the strange, wholly un-Disney-like quality of JM Barrie's original text, which is what they'll be bringing to the fore in their adaptation. The undertaking is helmed by artistic director Ralph Myers with Tommy Murphy as dramaturg — sure hands at plotting a course past the second star to the right and straight on till morning.

    Kicking off in the early days of January, Peter Pan will be a perfect fit for this festive time of year.
