Outdoor Theatre event - "Peter Pan" by J.M. Barrie

Award Winning Outdoor Theatre Company Illyria brings Peter Pan, by J.M. Barrie, to Eyes Meadow, Duffield on 10th July, 2022 - the show starts at 2pm.

Tickets are now available at www.illyria.co.uk and cost £7.50 adult; £4 child (5-16), under 5s FREE (but still need a ticket - available on the website).

Following the successful production in 2021 of The Further Adventures of Doctor Dolittle, Illyria is back in 2022 bringing to Eyes Meadow the classic story of Peter Pan, by J.M. Barrie.

Wendy Darling is certain she saw the face of a boy at her bedroom window 3 floors up – yet no-one believes her. So who can blame her when she agrees to fly away to the idyllic Neverland with him? But is Neverland as perfect as it seems? Or will the evil Captain Hook and his band of pirates kill Peter and rule over it themselves?

Peter Pan was first performed by Illyria in 1997. It has been performed outdoors many times since by many different companies. But Illyria's 2022 production will be the first to feature REAL flying!

Now in its 31st year, Illyria has delighted audiences the length and breadth of the UK, and in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, the United States and Canada performing some of the most well-loved productions on offer. The company has won 4 international "Best Performance" awards and attracted numerous "5-star" and "Critics' Choice" reviews for the lively clarity of its approach to Shakespeare's plays, the high quality of its family shows and the refreshingly quirky originality of its English classics adaptations and Gilbert & Sullivan musicals.
