MY FRIEND PETER
Written by Casey Jay Andrews
Composed by Laura Trundle & Dominic Sewell
Directed by Leonie Marzecki
My Friend Peter is a family friendly folk musical for all those who seek big adventures in little places. Join Beatrix as she makes her journey through the uncharted water of a life most unexpected; share in the loves, losses, struggles and triumphs of one of the most celebrated authors in children’s literature. Her imagination comes alive on-stage accompanied by rousing folk-music, but the fantasy unravels when cruel twists of fate uncover a bitter-sweet reality behind the magic.
2016 marked the 150th anniversary of Potter's birth; HookHitch embarked on a UK tour of My Friend Peter in 2016 to commemorate the life and work of this influential and trailblazing woman.
After success at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and on tour with the folk-music infused storytelling of This was the World and I was King (***** The Saint, ***** Three Weeks) HookHitch Theatre returned with a much loved author at the helm of their new foot-stomping adventure.
Audiences are invited to discover something new, or be reminded of something forgotten as they step into the nostalgic world of Beatrix Potter.
