The National Theatre’s production of Peter Pan will return for a run at the new Troubadour White City Theatre next month.

The venue, from the team behind the pop-up King’s Cross Theatre, open in July and will have two flexible spaces of 1,200 and 800 seats respectively.

The devised version of Peter Pan, directed by Sally Cookson, first ran in 2016 at Bristol Old Vic and the NT. It will now return for a three-month run at Troubadour White City, from July 20 to October 27.

Co-produced with Bristol Old Vic, the show has design by Michael Vale, lighting by Aideen Malone and sound by Dominic Bilkey. It features original music by Benji Bower.

Casting for the new production has not yet been announced.

The production, which runs in the larger space, forms part of the theatre’s opening programme, which includes the launch of a family theatre festival TroubaKids.

Four shows will play in rep as part of this in the 800-seat space, including stage adaptations of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Aliens Love Underpants. It also includes Little Baby Bum Live and Monstersaurus!.

They will run from July 23 to September 1.
