'Of course that's how it begins: a harmless fairy tale to pass the hours' When Alice Liddell Hargreaves met Peter Llewelyn Davies at the opening of a Lewis Carroll exhibition in 1932, the original Alice in Wonderland came face to face with the original Peter Pan. In John Logan's remarkable new play, enchantment and reality collide as this brief encounter lays bare the lives of these two extraordinary characters.This is the new play from Academy Award winning screenwriter and playwright John Logan. His previous play RED played in London to great acclaim before transferring to Broadway where it won 6 Tony Awards including Best New Play.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Shattering in its intensity... the distressful, healing empathy which great theatre produces . If you are growing old, or love the old and recognise their youthfulness, it breaks your heart open" 5 stars. - The London Times "Bold, daring theatre that is unquestionably touched by greatness." 5 stars. - Sunday Times "A moving, 90-minute theatrical chamber piece about childhood, growing up and the pressure of literary immortality... a beautiful and searching play that will live long in the memory." - Telegraph "Logan beautifully particularises the psychological trauma of two adults whose childhood selves were never allowed to grow up." - Metro "Poetic and achingly wistful... Logan's writing is filled with arresting images... rather beautiful." - Arts Desk "Fascinating, deeply layered. Logan's play is a painfully moving, tenderly sketched portrait of life's challenges." - The Stage "Simmering... fiction, memory and multi-way commentary seethe up against and amid one another." - Financial Times
