Peter Pan

★★★★★ ‘Excellent. Witty. Wonderful.’ Daily Telegraph

All children, except one, grow up...

This winter, 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, played by Sophie Thompson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Four Weddings and a Funeral) await.
 

Following the acclaimed Jane Eyre, Sally Cookson brings her wondrously inventive Peter Pan to the NT 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.

Suitable for 7yrs+

RL performance: Saturday 21 January, 2pm

 

 

Relaxed Performances are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders, or a learning disability.

There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and some small changes made to the light and sound effects.

An easy way to understand the atmosphere is perhaps, 'the opposite of the quiet carriage on the train'.
