The show will play the Lyric Theatre this Christmas, from 23 November 2023 to 14 January 2024.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong has successfully played the West End twice before, and was nominated for a Best New Comedy Olivier Award in 2016
Co-written by Mischief’s Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields, the show sees the Cornley Drama Society battle through all manner of mishaps to try and put on a production of J M Barrie’s classic Peter Pan story.

Peter Pan Goes Wrong will also go on tour this autumn, playing UK dates from September 2023.
Kenny Wax, Producer, said in a statement: “What a wonderful day for Mischief, announcing a return to the West End over the Christmas holidays, as the original Mischief Company preview Peter Pan Goes Wrong at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Broadway. Whichever way you look at it, they must inadvertently be doing something right!”.
Mischief are also the creators of The Comedy About A Bank Robbery and the BBC TV comedy series The Goes Wrong Show.
The Play That Goes Wrong continues to pack in audiences at the Duchess Theatre, and is now booking to 28 April 2024. The show is the longest running show ever at The Duchess Theatre, and in January celebrated 3000 performances in the West End.
