Written by Mischief founding members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, Peter Pan Goes Wrong follows the woefully unlucky Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society as they attempt to put on a seamless production of J.M. Barrie’s classic Peter Pan. But as with the formula that ensured the success of The Play That Goes Wrong, everything that can goes wrong does. With inexperienced technicians and stage hands, forgotten lines and a set with a mind of its own, this is a hilarious slapstick production of Peter Pan as you’ve never seen it before!
The whole company of Mischief Theatre, including the trio of writers as well as Dave Hearn, Charlie Russell, Greg Tannahill and Nancy Wallinger, received critical acclaim for The Play Goes Wrong which won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2015. With international and UK tours under their belts, the Mischief Theatre Company are masters of perfection in chaos.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong is directed by Adam Meggido, whose improvised masterpiece Showstopper! The Improvised Musical plays to rave reviews at the Apollo Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue.
