Join Beatrix Potter as she makes her journey through the uncharted waters of a life most unexpected; share in the loves, losses, struggles and triumphs of one of the most celebrated authors in children's literature. Potter's imagination comes alive onstage accompanied by rousing folk music, but the fantasy unravels when cruel twists of fate uncover a bittersweet reality behind the magic.
Beatrix Potter led an extraordinary life and 2016 marks the 150th anniversary of her birth.
We navigate Potter's life through the innocent eyes of Noel Moore, the recipient of the original Peter Rabbit story. Noel was the invalid son of Beatrix's life-long friend Annie, and he was Beatrix's first and most loyal fan. At its core "My Friend Peter" is a play that deals with the strength of life after loss; the incredible resilience of human beings and their ability to rise up from the ashes of personal tragedy.
A huge amount of heart and charm, the kind of thing which really will appeal to audiences of all ages
A show for both those who love stories and those who love finding out about storytellers
