'All children, except one, grow up' – but how did one child named Peter escape his fate to become 'the boy who would not grow up'? Betwixt-and-Between explore the question behind the legend of Peter Pan in this new adaptation based on JM Barrie's 1906 prequel, brought to the stage for the first time. A family show, with a cast of new characters that builds upon the Peter Pan mythology, reminding us that the child in us is always free to fly out the window of reality and find space for one more adventure.

J M Barrie's prequel "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens" is not as well known as the famous story that became the beloved stage play, so I was very glad to experience this charming retelling, with the framing device of a father and daughter playing together in the park. Lots of fun for children, with ingenious junk-puppetry and lively characters; and more than a little of Barrie's underlying melancholy for those of us who have, alas, grown up. Highly recommended - but hurry, there are only two more performances.

A great start to our festival. Found it magical and loved seeing these super talented performers continuously play and invent. Loved the use of props and music. Never get tired of Peter Pan and this prequel. I’ve never read it so wasn’t sure how substantial the story would be but it was really strong and all the more meaningful for knowing what becomes of Peter. Something for every generation and full of heart!

This prequel to Peter Pan charts how Peter became Peter Pan. All the ingredients are there to make this wonderful, from the enchanting tales to the creative use of props, and great efforts from the two actors who carry the story for an hour, with endearing chemistry.
