Publisher's summary

This Audible Original Drama of Peter Pan takes listeners on a magical adventure with Peter, Wendy, Michael and John as they arrive in Neverland and take on Captain Hook with the help of Tiger Lilly and Tinker Bell.

The story begins at home in London during The Blitz, and Mary Darling is planning to evacuate her children to the countryside. However, her plans take an unexpected turn when a familiar face from her childhood returns...the one and only Peter Pan, the mysterious boy from Kensington Gardens. Intrigued by their mother’s friend, Wendy, Michael and John seek Peter Pan out, resulting in them being whisked off to Neverland and setting up home with Peter, Tinker Bell and the Lost Boys.

As Peter and his gang come up against the wickedly evil Captain Hook, their friendships and relationships are put to the test - can Wendy be honest with Peter about how she really feels, and will Michael and John return home without their sister?

Rupert Everett (The Happy Prince, My Best Friend’s Wedding) stars as Captain Hook alongside Adeel Akhtar (Four Lions, Killing Eve) as Smee, Gerran Howell (Catch-22, Emerald City) as Peter Pan and Eleanor Worthington Cox (Maleficent, Britannia) as Wendy alongside a full cast.

To mark the launch of this drama, Audible will be donating to Great Ormond Street Hospital, to whom J.M. Barrie unexpectedly and generously gifted his copyright of Peter Pan.

Performed by: Adeel Akhtar, Mariska Ariya, Catherine Bailey, Rupert Everett, Neil Frost, William Harper, Gerran Howell, Simon Kane, Mack Keith Roach, Rocco Padden, Richard Reed, Maya Shepelev, Louis Suc, Harry Tuffin and Eleanor Worthington-Cox.

About the Performer

BAFTA award-winning actor Adeel Akhtar is widely known for his roles in Netflix’s original film Murder Mystery, starring opposite Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, and The Nest opposite Jude Law. He also starred in the BBC's adaptation of Victor Hugo’s classic Les Misérables opposite Olivia Coleman and Lily Collins. For his performance as Monsieur Thénardier, he received high praise with Jasper Rees writing for the Arts Desk, "The most seductive performance of all was Adeel Akhtar, who channeled the spirit of Fagin as the chancer Thénardier. Whenever he was on screen, Les Misérables crackled with a keen, malign energy. He genuinely looked like a rat in human form, a creature of the shadows, unclean both inside and out." Akhtar was also in the BBC comedy Back to Life opposite Daisy Haggard, and had a guest starring role in the second season of the critically acclaimed thriller Killing Eve (BBC America). In 2017, Akhtar starred in the Academy Award-nominated comedy The Big Sick and became the first non-white actor to win a BAFTA TV Award in the Leading Actor category for his portrayal of Shazad in Murdered by My Father. Other British credits include Swimming with Men, Victoria & Abdul, The Night Manager, Apple Tree Yard, Capital, Unforgotten, Utopia (for which he received a BAFTA nomination), and the US TV series Ghosted.
