J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan (2015)
15 May – 14 June
George Llewelyn Davies, killed in action in WW1, was one of the children who inspired the iconic character of Peter Pan. Remembering him, and a generation of lost boys, Artistic Director, Timothy Sheader and Liam Steel rediscovered J. M. Barrie’s original stage play. This was an incredibly ambitious production for an open air venue; flying cast across the stage and audience without a roof seemed problematic, but through the use of bungees and the techniques taught by Wired Aerial, 'the aerialism suspends your disbelief a treat: Hiran Abeysekera as Peter...soars with abandon' (The Times). This new interpretation, set in the First World War, was deemed 'a visionary and defining production' (Time Out). The production was nominated in the 2016 Olivier Awards for Best Family Entertainment.
