Follow the second star to the right, and straight on to London! Mischief Theatre’s Peter Pan Goes Wrong returns to the West End for a third season, with performances at the Lyric Theatre from 23 November to 14 Jan. 2024.

Peter Pan Goes Wrong follows the fictional Cornley Drama Society during a performance of J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. The actors do all they can to battle technical hitches, settle cast disputes, and head to Neverland.

Mischief’s 2013 comedy play premiered at Alexandra Palace, followed by two Christmas seasons at the Apollo Theatre in 2015 and 2016. Peter Pan Goes Wrong is currently on Broadway until 8 Jul. 2023. Find out more about Mischief Theatre in the West End.

In a London Theatre review of Peter Pan Goes Wrong, our critic said: “I don't think I've heard laughter this loud or this continuous in the theatre all year. There were moments when I could barely open my eyes I was crying so hard with laughter. You can't fail to be impressed with a show in which even the spectacular sets seems to have a life entirely of its own.”

Adam Meggido directs Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields's play, with set design by Simon Scullion, costume design by Roberto Surace, lighting design by Matt Haskins, and sound design by Ella Wahlstrom. Peter Pan Goes Wrong casting will be announced at a later date.
