All children, except one, grow up...

Following our recent productions of Swallows and Amazons and Coram Boy, this year's Christmas show sees our imaginations soar skyward as JM Barrie's much-loved tale of the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up takes flight.

When the leader of the Lost Boys, the fleet-footed Peter Pan, loses his shadow during a visit to London, kind-hearted Wendy helps him re-attach it and is invited back to Neverland in return - where Tinker Bell the fairy, Princess Tiger Lily and, of course, the vengeful Captain Hook await.

Directed by Sally Cookson (who directed the Tobacco Factory's Christmas hit Cinderella as well as our own Treasure Island), Peter Pan explores the pain and possibilities of growing up, set to live music and a riot of colour, magic and merry mischief to fill the hearts of everyone this Christmas. 

Explores the play's melancholia in exhiliratingly subversive fashion."

The Times

Strange, witty, wonderful..."

The Telegraph evening of extraordinary richness, humour, energy and emotion."
