The complete cast has been announced for John Logan’s new play Peter and Alice, starring previously announced leads Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw (who performed together in the recent blockbuster James Bond film Skyfall).
Michael Grandage directs the world premiere production, which will also star Olly Alexander as Peter Pan, Ruby Bentall as Alice in Wonderland, Stefano Braschi as Arthur Davies/Reggie Hargreaves/Michael Davies, Nicholas Farrell as Lewis Carroll and Derek Riddell as JM Barrie. The play will run March 9 through June 1 at the Noel Coward Theatre. Opening night is set for March 25.
The production features set and costume design by Christopher Oram, lighting by Paule Constable and sound/music by Adam Cork.
Peter and Alice tells the story of an enchanting encounter between Alice Liddell and Peter Llewelyn Davies—the inspirations for Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan—who come face to face at the opening of a Lewis Carroll exhibition in 1932.
