Description
Lost Boy is an original British musical for a large cast of young adults.

A dark sequel to Peter Pan, this new story reunites J. M. Barrie's characters, now in their early twenties, when a young officer falls asleep with a copy of the children’s classic in his pocket and imagines himself as Peter embarking on one final “awfully big adventure" - The First World War.

Blending a contemporary music theatre style with music hall influences, Lost Boy premiered at the Finborough Theatre before transferring for an extended run at the Charing Cross Theatre in the West End.

Phil Willmott’s past musicals include The Dick Barton Trilogy, Around the World in Eighty Days, Once Upon a Time at the Adelphi and Princess Caraboo (also composed with Mark Collins) all published by Samuel French.
