  • 1.  Peter and the Starcatcher - Mollusks

    Posted 29 days ago
    I am directing Peter and the Starcatcher right now and curious if anyone here had additional conversations with your actors and community about the Mollusks and how they are represented. Especially when thinking about the way native people were originally represented in Peter Pan. Hoping to have an open dialogue with my ensemble as we embark on Peter and the Starcatcher. Looking forward to hearing any input!--

    I didn't even need to bring it up with my students we all knew that portraying "natives" the way the traditional story does, is racist AF. The script itself addresses this by making them super Italian. We are leaning in hard on it with giant Whisks and Tongs as their weapons and chef hats etc.
