The National Theatre’s production of JM Barrie’s classic tale Peter Pan is set to return to London later this year.
Peter Pan will be showing at the Troubadour White City Theatre between 20 July – 27 October 2019.
Described as “unforgettable and delightful” by The Guardian, the magic-filled tale tells the story of the leader of the Lost Boys Peter Pan, who loses his shadow on a visit to London. Wendy helps Peter to reattach it and in return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell, Tiger Lily and the fearsome Captain Hook await them.

The production was first seen at Bristol Old Vic and reconceived at The National Theatre in 2016. The show features aerial acrobatics alongside live music from the on stage band.
The National Theatre production of Peter Pan will be directed by Olivier Award-winner Sally Cookson (Jane Eyre, A Monster Calls), with music by Benji Bower and costume design by Kate Sykes.
Casting will be announced soon.
