Olivier Award-winning stage group Mischief Theatre are back in the area this week with their new show Peter Pan Goes Wrong.
This comedy spin on a timeless classic is touring nationwide, visiting the Theatre Royal Nottingham from July 6-11.
Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, Peter Pan Goes Wrong is directed by Adam Meggido. The production is performed by an ensemble cast of ten.
The play introduces The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society who are attempting to stage J.M. Barrie’s classic tale of 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 hilariously disastrous results.
A highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned mayhem and Buster Keaton-inspired slapstick, Peter Pan Goes Wrong delivers a fast-paced show with split-second timing and ambitious daring.
Mischief Theatre exploded onto the stage with phenomenal success last year with The Play That Goes Wrong, the first of their ‘Goes Wrong’ hit shows. Starting at the Old Red Lion in London, the production then transferred to the West End where it enjoyed two successive runs at the Trafalgar Studios, exciting critics, audiences and celebrity fans into a frenzy of delight and won Best New Comedy at the 2014 WhatsOnStage Awards.
Producers Kenny Wax and Stage Presence Ltd picked up the show and produced a two-act version of the play, which enjoyed a sell-out UK tour and swiftly followed with a West End transfer to the Duchess Theatre.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong first premiered with a small-scale production at The Pleasance London in December 2013. This production has been developed and redesigned for a number one UK tour.
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.
The recent success of The Play That Goes Wrong has put Mischief firmly in the spotlight, attracting critical acclaim and international attention from theatre producers worldwide.
