PeterPanPortrayals Photo When J. M. Barrie first wrote the play Peter Pan, its first production was in 1904, and Peter was played by an actress; first it was Nina Boucicault, then Maude Adams, and then many other actresses over the years in various productions. People often wonder why the role of Peter Pan has so often been cast with a woman instead of a boy or man. The reason for this “tradition” was because of labor laws in England stating that child actors couldn't work on stage after 9:00 p.m. So, it was for practicality that productions used grown women to play the role instead of young boys.

The accompanying photo for this quiz is one of actress Veronica Lake from a 1951 national stage tour she did as Peter Pan. We don't hear much about this and several other portrayals. But here is a quiz of just ten of the noteworthy portrayals of the ageless boy.
