Peter Pan and Physical Contact

I noticed something in while watching the Cathy Rigby stage version of Peter Pan, that Peter is never touched by another character, unless he instigates the contact. He’ll take Wendy’s hand, sometimes, but he has to be the one to take her hand, she can’t take his, and anything beyond hand holding is off the table.

In fact, when Wendy tries to hug Peter when they first meet, Peter flat out tells her not to touch him.

Peter: I don’t have a mother.

Wendy: Oh, Peter!

Peter: You mustn’t touch me.

Wendy: Why?

Peter: No one must ever touch me.

Wendy: Why not?

Peter: I don’t know.

Peter doesn’t know why he doesn’t like to be touched, but at least in this version of the play, he’s consistent; this isn’t a throwaway line like it has been in other versions. It’s made more apparent when the Lost Boys decide to grow up, and leave Neverland with the Darlings. When  they say goodbye to Peter they don’t touch, The twins even try, but Peter rejects them, it’s the same for Tootles, Curly, (this version is missing Nibs for some reason), and Slightly who Peter doesn’t even touch when he names him captain and gives him pixie dust.  These are his boys and he won’t even let them shake his hand.

Then Wendy says goodbye, and their farewell here is just more heartbreak on top of heartbreak,  because Peter is heartbroken, has been since they all decided they were leaving, but instead of accepting comfort he again rejects physical contact.

Wendy: Peter, if another little girl should come along…one younger than I—Oh, how I wish I could take you in my—

[Goes to hug him, and he stops her] 

Wendy: Yes, I know. Goodbye.

So, why don’t more versions do this? Why do they ignore this part of this great character? Yes, Peter Pan is fun and playful, mischievous, forgetful, and a bit unkind at time because everything is fun and games for him and people don’t get hurt in games, but I think this add a different depth to the character. He’s a broken boy who ran away from home because he didn’t want to grow up and die. He has a painful past, his mother moved on, had another child, and in a child’s mind that means she forgot him, it means she didn’t want him and that she forgot him. He’s hurt, but he doesn’t understand it and to him physical contact and affection are a foreign thing.

I would love to see this side of Peter Pan examined in fanfiction. Maybe, this Peter doesn’t fit with the animated Disney movies, or the 2003 live action version, but Peter Pan in Once Upon a Time, most definitely. I mean, think about it, stories where Felix, or Wendy, or even Henry, or some wonderful combination of them all, helping Peter through his past, helping him accept touch. I don’t have the skills to pull this off, but I know there are fanfic writers out there that do. 

I have a place where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
It’s not on any chart,
You must find it with your heart.
Never Never Land.

It might be miles beyond the moon,
Or right there where you stand.
Just keep an open mind,
And then suddenly you’ll find
Never Never Land.

You’ll have a treasure if you stay there,
More precious far than gold.
For once you have found your way there,
You can never, never grow old.

And that’s my home where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land.

You’ll have a treasure if you stay there,
More precious far than gold.
For once you have found your way there,
You can never, never grow old.

And that’s my home where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land.

—  Peter Pan 

Cathy Rigby is fucking 60 years old and she was flying on a wire doing flips and shit and hand stands on stair posts or whatever they’re called and dancing around with white and black Native Americans while looking and sounding like a 9 year old boy the whole time. Like the fuck I can’t even run 3 feet without getting an asthma attack and sweating profusely. I mean I can do a head stand but that’s the extent of my acrobatics.
