Peter Pan

17 May 2018 - 15 June 2018

Daily Telegraph

“A PRODUCTION THAT REALLY SOARS. The genius is that it cross-fertilises the innocence of the pre-war years with the horrors that followed. This is A WATER-TIGHT FAMILY SHOW."

Sunday Express

"INVENTIVE, REVELATORY, and DEEPLY AFFECTING. The extraordinary flying feats...the glorious puppetry - Elisa de Grey manipulating the finest ever Tinker Bell - a crocodile and mermaids made from gas masks, a stepladder and battlefield detritus, leave the children in the audience enchanted. It's enough to make one believe in fairies."

Financial Times

"THRILLING...When Peter Pan premiered in Regent's Park in 2015 it was warmly lauded, and rightly so".

Daily Express

"JOYOUS...a night of pure theatre and full of wonder."

Culture Whisper

"Jon Bausor's set is a joy, full of surprises that had audience members of all ages gasping. It's rare to find a show that can delight young and old in equal measure, but Peter Pan pulls it off."

Afridiziak

"The multi-ethnic company’s casting is seemingly ‘colour-blind’, bar Raphael Bushay’s portrayal of Nibs, an enlisted Caribbean soldier/lost boy. This nod to the 16,000 Caribbean troops that fought in the British West Indian Regiment is refreshing, in a context where the contributions of some four million black and Asian men to the war effort are rarely acknowledged in popular culture.”

The Stage

"A SUPERB and MOVING production. Sam Angell is A PERFECT PETER PAN".

LondonTheatre.co.uk

"SURPRISING and CHILLING. The theatricality of its puppetry is superb. This is a MAGICAL, MASTERLEY production...constantly playful but also deeply poignant. NOT TO BE MISSED".

BroadwayWorld.com

"Dennis Herdman is terrific as Captain Hook, along with his gang of hapless pirates. This is A BEAUTIFUL PRODUCTION that captivates its audience from start to finish".

The Times

“Its blend of WONDER, POIGNANCY and SWASHBUCKLING EXCITMENT should sweep adults and children alike off their feet."

Evening Standard

"Watching Timothy Sheader and Liam Steel's ingenious, magical spectacle unfold is THRILLING.

The Arts Desk

"GLEEFUL...INFECTIOUS...A JOYFUL CELEBRATION OF THEATRE".

Sardines Magazine

"It has been a while since I cried in the theatre but I defy you not to at this intensely poignant, deeply moving take on Peter Pan which marks the end of World War One. It's a marvellous show, one of the best I have seen in a very long time - DON'T MISS IT".

Official London Theatre

"Regent's Park Open Air Theatre's spectacular production of Peter Pan is back...and continues to send hearts and minds soaring with its wonderful charm"
