Co-written by Mischief Theatre company members 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 Polytechnic 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 seasons, a tour of Australia and New Zealand and a UK tour. A one-hour version of the show was broadcast on primetime BBC One in December 2016, starring David Suchet as the guest narrator and watched by an audience of over six million worldwide.

Their forthcoming ‘Mischief Season’, a year-long West End residency at the Vaudeville Theatre, will premiere three new comedies: Groan Ups from 20 September and Magic Goes Wrong from 14 December. The third production has yet to be revealed. Mischief are also set to launch a brand new six-part television series for BBC One, The Goes Wrong Show, written and starring the original founding Mischief Theatre members.
