The staging is wonderful from the get go, opening to a cosy family bedroom scene where the kids play battles and imagine themselves into different worlds.
They are soon visited by Peter Pan - Ziggy Heath - of course, and end up in Neverland where they search for their “lost” brother Tom, a new character and focus of the Darling parent's depression.
Throughout, the set looks great but where the magic really comes is from the script and the brilliant acting from the cast, who are flawless throughout. Glitter, confetti, brilliantly placed lights and Peter and Isobel McArthur’s Wendy flights round the stage really transport you.
Gyuri Sarossy's Hook is the perfect “heel”, raising boos from the audience as the pantomime villain and scaring the kids, who Heath’s Peter also plays to perfectly. Sally Reid's Tink goes full-Scottish, had the kids laughing and was at the center of one of the standout moments for the younger audience.
Wendy is the real emotional centrepiece of the play though, as the reversal of the title names from the original novel by Barrie would suggest. She guides the rest of the characters through the world and is the protagonist, focus and driver of the plot.
