'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. 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.'
- Heather Owen

DRAYTON ARMS THEATRE PREVIEW 19th JULY 2019
"Charlotte Ellen and Daniel Arbon play Mary and George (and a host of other characters) with a joyful playfulness that invites the audience to follow them into their make-believe worlds. There’s lots of imagination in this production, some lovely use of puppetry and brilliant lighting and sound effects. As they follow each other into their world of invention you get a real sense of J.M. Barrie’s wit and talent for the slightly surreal."
