Wendy And Pe­ter Pan

Lyceum The­atre, Ed­in­burgh

Di­rec­tor Eleanor Rhode adds a sprin­kling of fes­tive fairy dust to this pro­duc­tion of JM Bar­rie’s story of the boy who never grows up, adapted here for the stage by Ella Hick­son. In this ver­sion Wendy gets a lead­ing role, fear­lessly fly­ing in to take on Cap­tain Hook and the pi­rates in a swash­buck­ling ad­ven­ture suit­able for all ages. Rhode, who, like Hick­son and Bar­rie, stud­ied in Ed­in­burgh, says the Lyceum’s ver­sion of Nev­er­land will be “a bit rough and ready”, a lot like the Scot­tish cap­i­tal – “mag­i­cal and a bit wild”.
