"An exploration of love, loss, identity and magic, Lost Girl continues the story of J.M. Barrie's beloved character - the girl who had to grow up.

FUSE Theatre of CT will present Kimberly Belflower's play "Lost Girl" on July 22 and July 23 at Gateway Christian Fellowship in West Haven, CT. "Lost Girl" is a gorgeous new work by the award-winning, up-and-coming American playwright Kimberly Belflower, based on the continued story of Wendy Darling from J.M. Barrie's "Peter Pan." Years after returning from her adventure in Neverland, Wendy remains fixated on her beloved Peter and the childhood magic she left behind. Can Wendy face finally leaving her nursery and learn what it really means to grow up? "Lost Girl" is a lyrical exploration of finding love, overcoming trauma and entering adulthood. BroadwayWorld says it "draws the audience in through this story we've heard a dozen times before, then winds up bringing the high-flying fantasy back to solid ground. It's refreshing, bold, and brave to take such iconic characters into a new and very real place, teeming with the big, wild emotions of adolescence."
