Mischief Theatre have returned to the Apollo Theatre London with their smash-hit calamitous comedy Peter Pan Goes Wrong. Following the recent extension of The Play That Goes Wrong as well as the opening of The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, Mischief Theatre are fast proving themselves to be one of the West End’s most creative companies. After a hugely successful run in 2015, Peter Pan Goes Wrong opened in October 2016 for another festive run, after being nominated for Best New Comedy at the Olivier Awards.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong sees The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society return once more in a desperate attempt to deliver their latest production of J.M Barrie’s beloved Peter Pan. Unfortunately the drama society’s journey to Neverland is not as plain-sailing as they had hoped, as set malfunctions, costume disasters and cast disputes halt the production. With plenty of side-splitting gags, unexpected moments and chaotic calamities, Peter Pan Goes Wrong is the perfect Christmas comedy.
Original cast members featured creators Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields alongside Mischief Theatre members Dave Hearn, Charlie Russell, Greg Tannahill and Nancy Wallinger. With this cast moving to the Criterion Theatre to appear in the company’s latest endeavour The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, Peter Pan Goes Wrong includes an entirely new but equally entertaining cast. Previous creative team included director Adam Meggido (Showstoppers! The Improvised Musical), as well as lighting designer Matt Haskins, sound designer Ella Wahlstrom, costume designer Roberto Surace and critically-praised set designer Simon Scullion.
A guaranteed evening of hilarity, Peter Pan Goes Wrong is the perfect festive treat for the family, promising plenty of pranks, mishaps and misadventures. Mischief Theatre’s popular pants pantomime flew into the Apollo Theatre London in October 2016, entertaining audiences until January 2017.
Those who love Mischief Theatre’s other comedies will love this pantomime-like production! If you missed it in 2015, now is the opportunity to see it!
