 Peter Pan Goes Wrong. Dress Rehearsal

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 Waxand 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, where it is currently playing to packed houses and has been nominated for the Olivier Award for ‘Best New Comedy’ 2015*. 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.
