One of the great joys of summertime in London has to be an evening at Regents Park Open Air Theatre. And there’s no better play to see here than Peter Pan, a story made for the magical setting in the woods. George Llewelyn Davies, killed in action in 1915 was one of the children who inspired J.M. Barrie to create Peter Pan. In his memory, this story revolves around the Lost Boys – a hospital ward of injured soldiers – for whom imagination is their only escape. Soon they’re in the fantasy world of Never Never Land, with Captain Hook, Tinkerbell and swashbuckling adventures that transport them a million miles from the war.
This adaptation was first shown in 2015 to critical acclaim but it’s back this summer to mark the centenary of the end of World War 1. An ideal half term treat, the show is for ages 4-11 but that’s not to say that adults won’t enjoy it too.
