The Barn Theatre have revealed that their reimagined one-man production of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan starring Waylon Jacobs (Hamilton, Memphis, The Last Five Years) will be available to live stream internationally at select performances during its run in Cirencester.
This new take on the classic tale, adapted by Alan Pollock and co-conceived by Kirk Jameson and Nick Barstow, follows a father in a hotel room, three thousand miles away from home. Desperate not to miss bedtime, he recreates his daughter’s favourite story: An epic tale of adventure, pirates, fairies – a crocodile with gigantic teeth! – and a little boy who refuses to grow old.
