Peter Pan this is NOT

Overall
3 out of 5 stars
Performance

Story

Reviewed: 31-12-19

Whoever decided to rewrite Peter Pan must have imagined they were improving it. They have not. Why move the story to the 1940s? Why excise the Indians and replace them with ‘Lost Girls’, whose existence totally goes against the (included) premise that girls are too sensible to fall out of their prams? And why on earth change the original vocabulary (Hook calling people ‘numpties’ and exclaiming ‘not on your nelly’)?? Everett is superb and the performances are fine - just a tragedy some misguided individual decided to mess with the actual original text in this ridiculous way...
