      Time Out

      JAW-DROPPING...a magical spectacle, and a heap more besides. It looks stunning: stuffed with steampunky puppets some swashbuckling flight scenes.
      A VISIONARY and DEFINING production”

      Daily Telegraph

      TERRIFIC ... boisterous and full of childlike ingenuity. The production is drenched in magical, earthy delights.
      The elegant, poetic irony that shadows the action is unmistakable; it’s a shimmering mix of dream and nightmare”

      The Times

      Timothy Sheader and Liam Steel's fluid, physical THRILLING. The aerialism suspends your disbelief a treat.

      Daily Express

      “As the sun goes down in Regent's Park and a crescent moon rises above the stage, the Open Air Theatre sprinkles its own kind of fairy dust across the auditorium”

      Culture Whisper

      “It’s rare to find a show that can delight young and old in equal measure, but Peter Pan pulls it off. There’s an enlightening interpretation to the original that will touch adults, and COPIOUS ADVENTURE, EXCITEMENT and WONDER to keep kids enthralled.”


      You'll believe a boy can fly. Eve, my early stage secondary school companion enjoyed this Peter Pan as much as I did. Each of us brought our own level of understanding to this unexpected reworking; each found satisfaction.

      Evening Standard

      PHYSICALLY INVENTIVE...with a majestic sense of spectacle”

      The Guardian

      “Timothy Sheader and Liam Steel’s clever production soars with ingenuity.”

      The Stage

      “Set designer Jon Bausor has surpassed himself in creating a stunning Never Land that cuts through the khaki and grey of the war as sharply as Nick Powell’s haunting original score.
      A hugely entertaining, RICHLY IMAGINATIVE adaptation that also lends perspective to the ideologies of the First World War”

      “I don’t suppose there could be a better adaptation of Peter Pan than has been achieved here – on stage, in film, in your wild spun dreams.
      This is a DARING and INGENIOUS exhibition of how theatre can transfigure the old stories we know so well into an encounter so singular, we forget we ever knew the story at all.”


      “Never Land really flies at this outdoor theatre. Fight scenes are ROLLICKING, while the buoyant, bouncing flying will have you yearning to join in.”

      Financial Times

      “A heart-rending staging of JMBarrie’s story…it’s SPRIGHLY, IMAGINATIVE and TERRIFIC FUN, but it is also IMMENSELY POIGNANT

      Sunday Mirror

      “Do you believe in fairies? You will after this wonderful Peter Pan. A PIECE OF THEATRICAL MAGIC


      “This GORGEOUS, MAGICAL production uses the losses inflicted by World War 1 as a powerful backdrop to Barrie’s enduring story of arrested childhood.”
