Peter Pan Goes Wrong returns to London

Published March 1, 2016

Olivier Award-nominated comedy Peter Pan Goes Wrong will bring its festive silliness back to the London stage this winter, playing at the Apollo Theatre from 20 October to 29 January.

The hilarious modern seasonal classic joins the members of The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society as they attempt to stage a production of the famous tale about flying boys, pirates, fairies and a ticking crocodile. With technical issues, flying mishaps and cast disputes, everything goes the way the title suggests.

When the production made its West End debut last Christmas, Official London Theatre’s Kate Stanbury described it as: “Energetic, silly and downright hilarious”.

The pants pantomime is written by the team behind the winner of last year’s Best New Comedy Olivier Award, The Play That Goes Wrong, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields.

The trio are currently working on another West End play, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery. The tale of a massive diamond, eight bumbling crooks and a dozing security guard begins its run at the Criterion Theatre from 31 March.
