One of 18th Centuries Europe’s finest wits and tamer of words never truly gets the praise he deserves in modern society, it is to be enemy of Time when figures such as Richard Sheridan are venerated and applauded by 21st Century audiences and readers of his work but to whom never seem to see the plays due to the length of the production and the fear of producers to take them beyond the boundaries of London.

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.
