Peter Pan Goes Wrong made its premiere at the Pleasance Theatre in London in December 2013. After a 2014 U.K. tour, the production transferred to the West End's Apollo Theatre for a holiday season in 2015 and returned to the West End the following year for another holiday engagement. The play was also adapted into a one-hour TV special, which was broadcast December 31, 2016, on BBC One.
Co-penned by Mischief’s Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, Peter Pan Goes Wrong sees the Cornley Drama Society back on stage battling technical hitches, flying mishaps, and cast disputes as they attempt to present J.M. Barrie’s much-loved tale.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong is directed by Adam Meggido with set designs by Simon Scullion, costumes by Roberto Surace, lighting by Matt Haskins, sound by Ella Wahlstrom, and original music by Rob Falconer and Richard Baker.
