About the play

This winter, the Gate Theatre is proud to present J.M. Barrie’s children’s classic Peter Pan, in a magical new version by bestselling author Roddy Doyle.

Transported from Edwardian London to early 20th century Dublin, the beloved story of the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up sees the Darling children, Wendy, Michael and John, whisked away to The Never Land by Peter Pan and Tinker Bell where they team up with the wild Lost Boys to battle the sinister Captain Hook and his right-hand man, Smee.

Directed by Ned Bennett, this unforgettable new production at the Gate Theatre, begins previews from Saturday, 4th November.

Recommended for children aged 8 and up

Please be advised that Peter Pan contains haze, enclosed spaces, flashing lights, strobe lighting and sudden loud noises.

Approx. 2 hrs 15 min including interval.
