Peter Pan to Fly Back to London's Kensington Gardens

News   Peter Pan to Fly Back to London's Kensington Gardens
 
Peter Pan will return "home" to London's Kensington Gardens, where the story is partially set and where JM Barrie was inspired to write the play after meeting the Llewelyn Davies family there.

A bronze statue of the character is also located in the gardens, at the spot where Peter Pan flies out of his nursery and lands beside the Long Water. Now, a new stage version of the story will be staged in a specially designed 1,100-seat tent that will be situated in the meadow between West Carriage Drive and the North East of Kensington Gardens. It will begin performances May 26 prior to an official opening June 10, for a run to Aug. 30. This new production will be 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 has previously adapted Vernon God Little for the Young Vic and Blood Wedding for the Almeida.
