Mischief Theatre's hit Christmas production of Peter Pan Goes Wrong will embark on a new tour from October this year.

Based on JM Barrie's tale of a boy who never grows up, the play comes from the same team behind The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, and sees the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society attempt to put on a production with disastrous results. The piece was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.

The tour begins at the Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham on 19 October and will visit 15 venues across the country until spring 2020. The show will run at Alexandra Palace in London over the Christmas season from 13 December 2019 to Sunday 5 January 2020 with tickets on sale on Friday 26 April.

The show was previously broadcast live in 2016, and received a five-star review from WhatsOnStage when it premiered in the West End.

The company will be presenting a number of shows over the next year, including two new pieces Groan Ups and Magic Goes Wrong, alongside their long-running West End pieces The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About a Bank Robbery.

Cities included on the tour will be Cardiff, Bath, Brighton, Cambridge and more. Casting for the show is to be announced.
