Overview

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.

I honestly have not laughed so much as I did with Peter Pan Goes Wrong. Having already seen The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, I was so excited to complete the trio of Mischief Comedy, and this show turned out to be my favourite! Just when you think it can't get any funnier, it does! There's surprise after surprise - you keep thinking they've hit their peak and then they do something else which is even funnier! The choreography is excellent, fast-paced, comedic and with tons of slapstick elements. It's no wonder that Mischief Theatre are taking over the West End when they keep producing shows like these. I also happened to see the same cast I saw in The Play That Goes Wrong, which was great as I got to see the actors play the same actors (it's all very meta). LOVED it.

I'd already seen (and loved) The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, so only had this one left to go to complete the Mischief Theatre trilogy. As expected, it was absolutely hilarious from start to finish. I took my whole family with me, and we were ranging in ages from 8 to 70 and every single person said their face ached at the end from laughing so much! Very cleverly written, perfect timing and some really clever staging - I really take my hat off to these guys, and I can't wait to see what they do with show number 4!

Peter Pan Goes Wrong is another hilarious addition to Mischief Theatre’s West End offering. If you’ve seen The Play That Goes Wrong or The Comedy About a Bank Robbery and loved it, then you should expect similar jokes and slapstick here. It offers a nice alternative to a Christmas Panto, giving a genuinely funny twist on the idea. The one downside is that the jokes can get slightly repetitive, especially if you’ve seen The Play That Goes Wrong recently which is incredibly similar. The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is probably a slightly better alternative if that’s the case as it is more different in style than the other two.

Another amazing production from the Mischief company. A real laugh out loud show. Incredible set and staging. The actors are just brilliant and work so well together. I just loved the whole production. A show for all ages and a definite to try with people who wouldn't normally visit the theatre.

Very, very funny. Superbly choreographed stunts. Absolutely manic start to finish. Not quite as good as The Play that goes wrong. But not far off. Whole family enjoyed the play. Highly recommended.

A very good slap stick style show! If you have seen the other plays in the series (not needed to have seen but the genre is the same - Play that goes wrong and Bank Robbery that goes wrong) then there is nothing new here but still funny and slapstick. The audience loved the slap stick, falls, trips and scenery collapsing. It's a good production and has an am dram feel to is (as desired). I would recommend this to all!

This is my favourite of the 3 Mischief Theatre Co productions currently doing the rounds in London. I had tears streaming down my face and a stomach ache from such laughter. Absolutely adored the entire evening - a totally fabulous show which I hope will be returning again for 2017/2018 and beyond!

I have never laughed harder at the theatre. Yes, it's slapstick humor and not to everybody's liking probably (the teenagers beside me didn't seem into it and kept rolling their eyes) but great physical comedy. Totally recommended!

Mischief Theatre have created another side splitting comedy which never had a single dull moment. The cast of new and old members had the perfect timing needed for this type of comedy. I am sad it is ending, again, but I am so grateful to have seen this 5 Star show.
