Jess L. Callaghan
Runtime
60 minutes

NeverWonder is a new, Mad, and Queer Canadian musical combining two beloved world lores (J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan and Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland/Through The Looking Glass) and tells the poignant story of two young women who bond over the adventures and mishaps of their fantastical childhoods, and follows their journey of support and recovery.
This show hinges on topics of Madness, mental illness, trauma, and LGBTQ+ topics.
The best way to describe NeverWonder is a queer Alice (Wonderland) and Wendy (Neverland) fanfiction about surviving trauma in the musical form.

Land acknowledgement

We acknowledge the land we performing on is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and M├ętis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.
We also acknowledge the ongoing colonization, and genocide of the indigenous folks residing in Canada by the Canadian government, and support the movement to decolonize Canada as well as the Land Back movement.
We would also like to acknowledge the ongoing crisis of missing and murdered indigenous women, Two-Spirit, and nonbinary indigenous folk.
The ongoing eugenics in Canada is disproportionately aimed at disabled indigenous folks.
