Hospital challenges writers to make Peter Pan fly again

Bob Cox writes “that the trustees of a children’s hospital in Britain want to commission a top children’s writer to write a sequel to Peter Pan which will “share the same enchanting characters as the original, the same longevity, and be just as valid in a hundred years as the original is today”. The author of Peter Pan, JM Barrie, left the copyright of the stage play to the hospital. Any proceeds from the sequel would be used to upgrade equipment and services at the hospital.
