The Mischief Theatre Company return to Cambridge Arts Theatre bringing their riotous spin on a family favourite to the stage, Peter Pan Goes Wrong.
The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society set out to present J.M. Barrie’s classic tale of
Peter Pan, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong… does, as the accident prone thespians embark on a thrilling adventure to Neverland, with hilariously disastrous results.
The production runs at the Arts Theatre from April 7-11, nightly at 7.45pm. There will also be 2.30pm matinees on April 11 and 12.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned mayhem and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick; a fast-paced show with split-second timing and ambitious daring.
Olivier Award-winning 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. I have no doubt that Peter Pan Goes Wrong will be met with the same tremendous reaction.”
