The new multi-media production of Peter Pan, currently being performed in an 1,100-seat theatre tent in Kensington Gardens (where the story is partially set and where JM Barrie was inspired to write it after meeting the Llewelyn Davies family there), has extended its run.

Originally booking to Aug. 30, after beginning performances May 26 and officially opening June 10, Peter Pan is now booking for extra performances from Sept. 1-13. It will also embark on a 12-month North American tour, commencing in Chicago in May 2010; while a second production will also commence a Far Eastern Tour in New Zealand, kicking off in Aukland in January 2011. The production is directed by Ben Harrison, designed by William Dudley, and written by Tanya Ronder. Harrison is a leading exponent of site-specific theatre. Dudley is an Olivier Award-winning designer who has worked for the National, Royal Court and West End, and is well known for creating 3D virtual environments. Ronder previously adapted Vernon God Little for the Young Vic and Blood Wedding for the Almeida. The producers are Charlie Burnell and Mat Churchill for ThreeSixty Entertainment Ltd.

The cast is headed by Ciaran Kellgren playing Peter Pan, Abby Ford as Wendy Darling, Jonathan Hyde as Captain Hook/Mr. Darling, Karen Ascoe as Mrs. Darling and Itxaso Moreno as Tinkerbell, with Arthur Wilson as John Darling and David Poynor as Michael Darling.
