The Noel Coward Theatre is set to play host to a brilliantly inventive new show that explores a meeting between the real life inspirations for both Alice In Wonderland and Peter Pan.
Entitled Peter And Alice, the production stars Dame Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw who portray Alice Liddell Hargreaves and Peter Llewelyn Davies.
Star of stage and screen Dench returns to the West End for this new show following her critically acclaimed performances in A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Rose Theatre in Kingston and also Madame De Sade in 2009’s Donmar West End season.
He co-star Whishaw has been equally impressive on stage and his credits include a role in Cock at the Royal Court, Some Trace Of Her and The Seagull at the National Theatre.
The pair also starred alongside one another in the latest Bond film – Skyfall – as he played Q.
This is writer John Logan’s first new play since Red, which went on to win six Tony Awards in 2010.
Peter And Alice is part of the newly formed Micharl Grandage Company’s first season, which has also seen Daniel Radcliffe in The Cripple of Inishmaan and Jude Law in Henry V.
The play will be at the Noel Coward Theatre for a three-month run from March 9th to June 1st and this could be the perfect accompaniment to a romantic weekend spent in one of the many luxury hotels in London.
Visitors to the city will be able to get tickets for one of the performances from as little as £12, while the best seats in the house will cost £69.
The Noel Coward Theatre is situated just a few hundred metres from the Leicester Square Tube stop, which runs on the Northern and Piccadilly Line.
