I've known a few impressive kids like these. As the event unfolds they're probably already, in their heads, telling their eventual grandkids the story (and a hundred other stories).

Peter's been swung by the fly crew to crash upside-down and backward through the window. Rights the ship by force of will. Bleeding from the top and back of his head, and no hesitation, he steps up, sprightly, in character: "Oh, hello, Wendy." And /only then/ she looks up from her mending, stands, and says, "Oh, Peter, there you are." Wonderful!

It makes me think of a movie called /Those Lips, Those Eyes/ (1980), with Frank Langella, ten years after he was in /The Twelve Chairs/. In TLTE he's not old but he's older than the kids in the theater they're working; they try to humiliate him by sabotaging him on stage, and he shows them, then and in the aftermath, how a professional handles it when things go wrong.
