The Watermill - PETER PAN

When the mischievous Peter Pan swoops in with tales of a magical place far beyond London’s starlit sky, what child can resist? Dreaming of fun and tempted by the promise of adventure, Wendy and her brothers journey with Peter to the mystical world of Neverland where children never have to grow up.

Together they explore a land with sparkling mermaids, swashbuckling pirates and a ticking crocodile. With the help of Peter’s band of Lost Boys and a sprinkling of fairy dust, they must brave the perils of Neverland and defeat the villainous Captain Hook.

A classic story of magic, courage and friendship with original music to warm your heart, fly away for an unforgettable adventure in Neverland.

Arlington Arts - Bonnie Dobson

Joined by top UK Folk Rock Musicians (affectionately known as “her boys”), the Canadian born Bonnie Dobson returned to the scene in 2013 with an album as immortal as her voice.

FEBRUARY

Corn Exchange - Grounded

She’s a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot. She’s pregnant. Her career in the sky is over. Now, she sits in an air-conditioned trailer in Las Vegas flying remote-controlled drones over the Middle East. She struggles through surreal 12-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night.

Grounded is a gripping, compulsive new play that flies from the heights of lyricism to the shallows of workaday existence. This extraordinary play targets our assumptions about war, family, and what it is to be a woman.
