ARE you ready for some laugh out loud comedy? Then The King’s is the place to be next week, when Peter Pan Goes Wrong flies gracefully onto the Leven Street theatre’s stage. Or does it?
The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society set out to present JM Barrie’s Peter Pan, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong… does, as the accident prone thesps embark on a thrilling adventure to Neverland, with hilarious results.
Following their smash hit success with The Play That Goes Wrong, which is now playing to packed houses in the West End, Mischief Theatre Company are back in the Capital with their riotous new spin on a timeless favourite.
Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, Peter Pan Goes Wrong is directed by Adam Meggido.
Producer Kenny Wax says, “We took a huge gamble in transferring The Play That Goes Wrong into the West End; a new comedy starring ‘no one famous’ by unknown writers. And yet our sold-out show is delighting packed houses night after night.
“Marketeers will tell you that there is only one thing that can create such a ‘hit’ and that is great word of mouth. “I have no doubt that Peter Pan Goes Wrong will be met with the same tremendous reaction.”
If you’re old enough to remember the genius of Michael Green and his ‘Art of Coarse Acting’ this could be the show for you.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong, King’s Theatre, Leven Street, next Tuesday-Saturday, 7.30pm (matinees 2.30pm), £14-£29.50, 0131-529 6000
