The Olivier Award-nominated production of Peter Pan has flown back into London and with it, brought a magical world that will lift you up this summer. The revival of the 2015 production is set against the backdrop of the First World War and tells a moving story that’ll touch all the story.
Peter Pan opened to previews last week and you can now get a wee look at the other-worldly show.
For the wounded soldiers of WW1, imagination is their only escape. Yet as they’re transported to the fantastical lagoons and pirate ships of Never Land, allegories of the war they’ve left behind are ever present. George Llewelyn Davies, later killed in action in 1915, was one of the children who inspired J. M. Barrie to create the iconic character of Peter Pan. Remembering him, and a generation of Lost Boys, the production enchanted young and old alike during its original, critically acclaimed run.
Having become renowned for its magically astounding spectacle and heart – which led to its Olivier Award nomination in 2016 for Best Family & Entertainment – this renowned production opened the Open Air Theatre’s 2018 season in suitably stunning fashion.
