"A rip-roaring adventure. Sally Cookson's adaptation soars." – Time Out
All children, except one, grow up. JM Barrie's much-loved tale takes flight. When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow during a visit to London, headstrong Wendy (Madeleine Worrall, Jane Eyre) helps him re-attach it. In return she is invited to Neverland – where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook (Anna Francolini, wonder.land), await. Following the acclaimed Jane Eyre, director Sally Cookson brings her wondrously inventive Peter Pan to the National Theatre after a sell-out run at Bristol Old Vic. Exploring the possibilities and pain of growing up, it’s a riot of magic, mischief, music and make-believe.
