This summer, get set for an awfully big adventure as the National Theatre’s “unforgettable and delightful” (Guardian) re-telling of JM Barrie’s classic tale takes flight at Troubadour White City Theatre, a brand new theatre only minutes away from Westfield London.
When leader of the Lost Boys, Peter Pan, loses his shadow during a visit to London, headstrong Wendy helps him re-attach it. In return she is invited to Neverland – where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await.
Bursting with magic, mischief, music and make-believe, Sally Cookson’s wondrously inventive Peter Pan is a funny and moving version of a much-loved story for audiences of all ages.
