“This is a serious play, it’s NOT a pantomime!”
Presented as a televised live performance by a hapless amateur dramatics company who (somehow) won a Community Stage award and were granted the presence of professional actor David Suchet to narrate their “Christmas vignette,” Peter Pan Goes Wrong is in fact an innovative meta comedy of errors from experienced Olivier Award-winning Troupe Mischief Theatre which mixes farcical slapstick with the awkwardness of embarrassment.
