We were lucky enough to see the last night of PETER AND ALICE on Saturday – seats as tricky to get hold of as a Willy Wonka golden ticket.
It’s about Peter Llewelyn Davies as a tragic grown man but immortalised forever as Peter Pan, and Alice Liddell Hargreaves as an old woman, the inspiration for Alice in Wonderland, and a fictionalised account of a meeting between them.
Loss, death, sadness. Exquisite and heart-breaking.
when my daughter Martha said that surely she too should be in this story, immortalised forever as bunny Martha with a long-eared shadow casting a terrible blight over her whole life, I laughed and laughed all the way home.
