Peter Pan to make mischief at Chester Storyhouse
Peter Pan will have barely left the stage at Storyhouse in Chester this month when he will be back – but in a very different guise.
After Storyhouse presented the popular story of the boy who wouldn't grow up as its Christmas show, Mischief Theatre now returns to the Hunter Street venue with its Olivier Award nominated festive farce Peter Pan Goes Wrong to carry audiences in to a hapless and haphazard 2020.
Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, Peter Pan Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely tuned farce and Buster Keaton-inspired slapstick, delivered with split-second timing and ambitious daring.
It sees the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society back on stage battling technical hitches, flying mishaps and cast disputes as they attempt to present JM Barrie’s much-loved tale. But will they ever make it to Neverland?
Mischief Theatre was founded in 2008 by a group of graduates of The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and began as an improvised comedy group.
This is the company's third visit to Storyhouse following its tours of The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About a Bank Robbery.
A donation from every ticket for Peter Pan Goes Wrong is going to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong is at Storyhouse from January 21-26. Tickets HERE
