Sally Cookson’s retelling of Peter Pan by JM Barrie will open at new West London venue, Troubadour White City Theatre, on 20 July 2019 and run through to 27 October, with a press performance on 27 July.
A National Theatre co-production with Bristol Old Vic, Peter Pan is devised by the companies and directed by Olivier Award-winner Cookson (Jane Eyre, A Monster Calls).
First seen at Bristol Old Vic and reconceived at the National Theatre in 2016, the production features innovative aerial acrobatics and live music from an on stage band. Bursting with magic, mischief, music and make-believe, Cookson’s inventive Peter Pan is a funny and moving version of a much-loved story.
Peter Pan is designed by Michael Vale with dramaturgy by Mike Akers, lighting design by Aideen Malone and sound design by Dominic Bilkey. The production features original music by Benji Bower, with movement direction by Dan Canham and puppetry co-design and direction by Toby Olié. Casting is by Sam Stevenson. Casting to be announced.
Troubadour White City Theatre will open at White City Place, the former BBC Media Village in West London. The venue will consist of two fully flexible spaces including a 1,200 fully flexible theatre and an 800-seat multi-purpose state-of-the-art theatre. White City Place is a joint venture development between Stanhope, Mitsui Fudosan and AIMCo.
