Journey To The World Of Never Land
Regent's Park Open Air Theatre season begins with a revival of Sheader and Liam Steel's Olivier award nominated production of Peter Pan. This production retells the story by J. M. Barrie in a World War 1 medical shelter. When this production first ran in 2015 at the theatre, the show received five star reviews.
Imagination is the only escape for the wounded soldiers of World War 1. As they're transported to the pirate ships and tranquil island of Never Land, the war they've left behind is still very present.
