About Peter Pan

National Theatre, London
Booking to 29 December 2016
No longer booking

This winter, JM Barrie’s much-loved Peter Pan takes flight at the National Theatre.

Featuring Anna Francolini as Captain Hook, Sally Cookson’s wondrously inventive Peter Pan comes to the NT after a sell-out run at Bristol Old Vic.

Exploring the possibilities and pain of growing up, it’s a riot of magic, mischief, music and make-believe.

Peter Pan runs from 16 November 2016 until 29 December 2016 at the National Theatre.


All children, except one, grow up…

When Peter Pan leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow during a visit to London, headstrong Wendy (Madeleine Worrall, Jane Eyre) helps him re-attach it.

In return she is invited to Neverland – where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook, played by Sophie Thompson await.


Directed by Sally Cookson, with dramaturgy by Mike Akers, set design by Michael Vale, costume design by Katie Sykes, lighting design by Aideen Malone, music by Benji Bower, sound design by Dominic Bilkey, movement direction by Dan Canham, aerial directing by Gwen Hales, fight direction by Rachel Bown-Williams and Ruth Cooper-Brown, and puppet direction and design by Toby Olié.
