The Press Night performance of Sally Cookson’s production of Peter Pan is to be delayed until Friday 2 December, and not Wednesday 23 November as previously announced. The first preview of the production will now take place on Thursday 17 November, and not Wednesday 16 November as originally scheduled. Patrons who have booked tickets for the first preview performance of the show will be contacted by the NT Box Office and transferred to a subsequent performance.

Sophie Thompson could no longer continue in the production due to badly breaking her wrist during rehearsals, which required surgery. Anna Francolini stepped into the roles of Mrs Darling / Captain Hook. Due to the devised nature of the production, additional rehearsal time is required to allow Anna to further develop the characters Sophie created and make them her own.

Sally Cookson said Sophies extraordinary work during workshops and rehearsals has left its mark on this production and we are all so grateful for her huge creative input. She is handing the baton on to the fabulous Anna Francolini to complete the journey. We send Sophie our love and wish her a speedy recovery following the successful operation to her wrist last Thursday.”
