Peter and Alice (and Dame Judi and Ben)

Playwright (Red) and screenwriter (Skyfall, Hugo, Sweeney Todd, etc.) John Logan has written a new play inspired by the fact that in 1932, Alice Liddell Hargreaves met Peter Llewelyn Davies, the inspiration for Peter Pan, at the Bumpus bookshop in London as part of a centenary tribute to Carroll. Logan wondered what the two immortal inspirations might have said to each other. Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw play the leads; it is directed by Michael Grandage and currently playing at the Noel Coward Theatre in London.
