'John Tiffany's production for the National Theatre of Scotland is spectacular.' Daily Telegraph

All children grow up, except one…

Peter Pan and the Darling Family are re-imagined in Victorian Edinburgh, a world full of mysterious mists, gas-lamps and bridges. Peter’s impish arrival into the lives of Wendy, John and Michael marks the beginning of a thrilling, deliciously naughty and unpredictable escapade. Together they take off on a fantastical flight to the colourful, wonderful Neverland, an enchanted place of vivid characters. There’s a gang of Lost Boys, a horde of pirates and of course, one of the wickedest villains of all time.

Razor-sharp fights, virtuoso flying sequences, acrobats, ticking crocodiles and one great big hook will ensure adults and children alike are drawn into this other-worldly adventure of epic proportions.

This production marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of JM Barrie.
