Peter Pan lied!

Determined to set the record straight, an aging James Hook takes to the stage to defend his reputation and reveal what really happened in Neverland. Assisted by first mate Smee, he takes us from his boyhood home in Victorian London to the deck of the Jolly Roger where, as the notorious Captain Hook, he relentlessly pursues the mercurial – and dangerous – Peter Pan. It's a  tour de force performance from Hook, who unfurls his epic tale while portraying all the characters who inhabit it.  

Burning ships, flying sand and talking crocodiles –  children are enthralled by the fantasy, while adults are drawn into a reverse telling of a cherished fairy tale that pits mortality against eternal youth, exploring why we must grow up to live fully.
