This dark sequel to Peter Pan reunites J M Barrie’s characters as young adults on the eve of World War I.

Exploring the hopes and dreams of a young officer as he prepares for battle with a copy of Peter Pan in his pocket, Lost Boy examines how these individuals’ extraordinary childhoods equipped them for reality and how much the child we were informs the adult we become.

The culture clash between the enchantment of childhood fantasy and real life provides a rich vein for humour and drama in this original story that sees him embark on an adventure with the grown-up Wendy, John, Michael and Tinker Bell.

Marking the centenary of the Great War, Lost Boy is a new British musical from Phil Willmott, who previously had success with Once Upon A Time at the Adelphi Theatre.
