Our voice is important, our opinions even more so and yet we decry others without even understanding them, without taking the time to truly listen without interrupting to what they are saying; at times it can seem like we have never gone past the ethics of the playground, whoever shouts loudest wins the argument. It is one that can be seen to have divided the nation, in some ways irrevocably, for the long foreseeable future as we continue to discuss the almost senseless act of offering a hopeful reasoned debate on the expectation of Britain’s role in the European Union, its position of a once in a lifetime vote of in or out.

This the second time out for Jonathan Munby’s Wendy and Peter Pan which has just finished its season and remains indicative of the R.S.C.’s continued policy of broadening its appeal without compromising quality. The play is neither musical nor pantomime and yet it incorporates the best of both formats and discards arguably the more irritating features that come with the story.
