Enjoy a comic spin on JM Barrie’s much-loved classic as Peter Pan Goes Wrong crash lands onto e Devonshire Park Theatre stage from Tuesday, March 24 to Sunday, March 29.

As the title suggests, everything that can go wrong does, as the accident-prone thesps embark on a thrilling adventure to Neverland with hilariously disastrous results.

A highly physical comedy, packed with finely-tuned mayhem and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick, Peter Pan Goes Wrong delivers a fast-paced show with split-second timing and ambitious daring.

Mischief Theatre, winners of the 2014 Whatsonstage ‘Best New Comedy’ Award, exploded onto the stage with phenomenal success last year with The Play That Goes Wrong, the first of their ‘Goes Wrong’ hit shows.

Starting at the Old Red Lion in London, the production then transferred to the West End where it enjoyed two successive runs at the Trafalgar Studios garnering rave reviews.

Peter Pan Goes Wrong first premiered with a small-scale production at The Pleasance, London in December 2013. This new production has since been developed and redesigned for a number one UK tour where the company will be casting local children at each venue to play ‘the Lost Boys’.

Performances 7.45pm; plus matinees Wednesday/Saturday, 2.30pm and Sunday, 3pm. Tickets £15.50-£23, concessions available, under 25s £10, under 16s and students £9. A donation from every ticket goes to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Book on 01323 412000 or online www.eastbournetheatres.co.uk
