Finding Neverland is the true story of playwright and author JM Barrie and how his friendship with the widowed Sylvia Llewellyn Davies and her children inspired one of the world's most treasured stories. Based on the Academy Award winning movie, expect to fall in love with the power of imagination and storytelling all over again.

After two adaptations were staged in 2011, Finding Neverland was then picked up again by Harvey Weinstein, who brought in Diane Paulus (Pippin), James Graham and UK pop star and Ivor Novello winning Gary Barlow to take on the score.
