Close the curtain quickly

I read the script version of Peter Pan when I was young and I've always remembered the stage directions written by James M. Barrie at the end of the scene in which Peter backs Captain Hook off the ship's plank, presumably to fall to the crocodile below.  "Close the curtain quickly," he wrote as I recall, " lest we should see Captain Hook's evil sneer across Peter's face."
