All children, except one, grow up…

Captured in front of a live audience at the National Theatre, a recorded performance of JM Barrie’s much-loved tale screens in cinemas this summer.

When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues.

A delight for children and adults alike, Sally Cookson (NT Live: Jane Eyre) directs this wondrously inventive production, a co-production with Bristol Old Vic theatre.

Dressed as a man, the exiled Rosalind is ready to begin a new life after escaping her foes in the dead of night. But, when she meets the love-sick Orlando, her disguise soon becomes more of a curse than a blessing.
