Except from an interview in Crain's Chicago Business:

CRAIN'S: Sarah, what prompted you to write a play as a gift, and why Peter Pan?

SARAH RUHL: I was very influenced by Lewis Hyde's "The Gift" and the idea that a present continues to accrue in value, so I decided to have my Yale playwrighting students start each semester by writing gift plays. This had such a profound effect on them, I thought of trying it myself, especially since my mother didn't seem too happy about turning 70. She played Peter Pan as a teenager in Davenport, Iowa, and my early love of theater was formed by pictures of her as the boy who won't grow up.

The curtain goes up next Thursday, April 6th, for this intimate Chicago Premiere of Sarah Ruhl's new play, For Peter Pan on her 70th birthday, directed by Jessica Thebus. Tickets are ONLY $20* for previews ( April 6th-9th ).
