Barrie’s original play of Peter Pan, Artistic Director Timothy Sheader creates a Never Land where danger stalks dreams and adventure breeds mischief with co-director Liam Steel following their work on Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess. Chehov’s The Seagull plays from 19 June – 11 July. Directed by Matthew Dunster in a new adaptation by Torben Betts, The Seagull is seen as one of the most important plays of the nineteenth century.
