MISCHIEF RETURN TO CAUSE MAYHEM AT NEWCASTLE THEATRE ROYAL
Mischief, the multi-award winning comedy team and firm favourites with Newcastle Theatre Royal audiences return to the region with the global phenomenon Peter Pan Goes Wrong (Mon 12 – Sat 17 Feb 2024).
Having delighted audiences in recent years with sell-out runs of The Play That Goes Wrong, Magic Goes Wrong, Mind Mangler – Member of the Tragic Circle and A Comedy About a Bank Robbery, Peter Pan Goes Wrong makes a popular return having played to packed out houses in 2015.
The production reunites returning Mischief cast members with some courageous new recruits. The full cast line-up includes: Jake Burgum (Trevor), Jack Michael Stacey (Chris), Matthew Howell (Robert), Jean-Luke Worrell (Francis), Ciara Morris (Sandra), Theo Toksvig-Stewart (Max), Clark Devlin (Dennis), Jamie Birkett (Annie), Gareth Tempest (Jonathan) and Rosemarie Akwafo (Lucy). With understudies: Romeo Mika, Clare Noy, Consuela Rolle and Phil Yarrow.
Co-penned by Mischief’s celebrated writing trio, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, Peter Pan Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned farce and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick, delivered with split-second timing and ambitious daring. The play sees the ‘Cornley Drama Society’ back on stage battling technical hitches, flying mishaps and cast disputes as they attempt to present J.M. Barrie’s much-loved tale. But will they ever make it to Neverland?
Nominated for an Olivier Award for ‘Best New Comedy’ in 2016, Peter Pan Goes Wrong has enjoyed two West End runs, a season on Broadway, a tour of Australia and New Zealand and two UK tours. BBC One broadcast a one-hour version of the show on primetime television in December 2016, starring David Suchet as the guest narrator, watched by an audience of over six million worldwide.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong plays at Newcastle Theatre Royal from Mon 12 – Sat 17 Feb 2024. Tickets can be purchased at www.theatreroyal.co.uk or from the Theatre Royal Box Office on 0191 232 7010.
