Peter and Alice
Noel Coward Theatre | West End | March, 2013
A new play by John Logan
Directed by Michael Grandage
Starring Judi Dench and Ben Winshaw
When Alice Liddell Hargreaves met Peter Llewellyn Davies at the opening of a Lewis Carroll exhibition in 1932, the original Alice in Wonderland came face to face with the original Peter Pan. In John Logan's remarkable new play, enchantment and reality collide as this brief encounter lays bare the lives of these two extraordinary characters. (Read more at playbill.com.)
"Michael Grandage recognises it is the words that make this piece come alive. He more or less leaves his two principals to it: so many of their lines, delivered with such sensitivity, now remain indelibly etched in my head. This is bold, original, daring theatre that is unquestionably touched by greatness."

"Logan's writing packs an unexpected punch at many turns. Peter and Alice is a thoughtful and ambitious play, unflinching in the treatment of the loss of childhood dreams."
