Peter Pan Goes Wrong today announces the cast for its return to the Apollo Theatre for a limited run from 21 October 2016 – 29 January 2017. Nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Peter Pan Goes Wrong sees the team behind the award-winning box office hit The Play That Goes Wrong bring their trademark comic mayhem to the J.M. Barrie classic and festive favourite, Peter Pan.
In Peter Pan Goes Wrong, the much loved members of The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society once again battle against technical hitches, flying mishaps and cast disputes on their way to Neverland with ￼hilarious and disastrous results.
Casting includes: Matt Cavendish, Bryony Corrigan, Susan Harrison, Harry Kershaw, Bailey Patrick, Laurence Pears, Daniel Pitout, Oliver Senton, Sydney Smith, Adeline Waby, Katherine Carlton and Tom Cox. Bryony, Harry, Laurence and Matt join the cast straight from Mischief Theatre’s Olivier award-winning production, The Play That Goes Wrong.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong is co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, creators of the sell out comedy The Play That Goes Wrong. Both ‘Goes Wrong’ productions are renowned for their highly physical comedy packed with finely tuned farce and Buster Keaton-inspired slapstick delivered with split-second timing.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong to be shown on television over Christmas
This Christmas Mischief Theatre will bring Peter Pan Goes Wrong to BBC One, especially adapted for television this coming festive season starring the original West End cast, including the three authors, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong has so far raised a significant sum of money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, not only in royalties but also including over £29,000 in collections at the door. This is the highest amount ever raised by a theatre production through bucket collections. The production will continue fundraising when it returns to the Apollo Theatre this October.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong and The Play That Goes Wrong are produced in the West End by Kenny Wax Ltd and Stage Presence Ltd.
By special arrangement with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
