Peter Pan Goes Wrong is play written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields of the Mischief Theatre Company, the creators of The Play That Goes Wrong. Like in The Play That Goes Wrong, the actors and crew are members of the fictitious Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society presenting their production of the J.M Barrie 1904 classic Peter Pan and ruin it through amateurism and personal rivalries.
I had never seen The Play That Goes Wrong but thoroughly enjoyed Peter Pan Goes Wrong. The way that everything goes wrong throughout the show is amazing to see how precise everything is though if something did actually not end up where it is supposed to be no one would even know. I really enjoyed the audience participation before the show. The sort of pantomime aspect of the show though it isn’t a traditional panto made for the show to have hilarious inputs throughout, which changed depending on the audience.
It was amazing to see such a small cast put on such an amazing show. The cast was: Jay Lagaaia as Francis, Darcy Brown as Jonathan, Francine Cain as Sandra, Connor Crawford as Chris, Adam Dunn as Trevor, Luke Joslin as Robert, George Kemp as Dennis, Jordan Prosser as max, Tammy Weller as Annie, Teagan Wouters as Lucy, Matt Whitty as Understudy 1 and Jessie Yates as Understudy 2.
The set was well done and I enjoyed seeing it fall apart on purpose. It felt like a set that you would see in a drama society performance. The revolving stage with the sets was fun to see as I haven’t seen many productions utilize it.
The costumes were beautiful. I really loved Tinkerbell’s outfit. The way the costumes worked with each other was great and I loved when they were “ruined”.
Overall Peter Pan Goes Wrong was an amazing show and I had a great time watching it. I will definitely see other shows that “goes wrong”
