It starts quite well, with a spiky encounter between the two in what looks like the back room of a bookshop, but then the scenery all changes and... well, I don't want to spoil it for those who are going, but for me, it seemed to be a cumbersome attempt to mix and meld some of the Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan themes/text/imagery in a way that didn't work for me - and that maybe makes it sound more dramatically thrilling than was the case! So the real-life inspirations for Alice and Peter were haunted and dominated by their fictional counterparts, and Carroll and Barrie were troubled and possibly unsavoury characters... it all felt very familiar.
However, my wife thinks I'm being very harsh! Got a good reception - some people around me gave it (or Judi and Ben) a standing ovation...

It ran for exactly 90 minutes - we were out at 9.05pm.

"As a postscript, we were in 2nd row of the stalls. I like being right down the front but the stage seemed very high. There didn't seem to be much of a rake for the first few rows. I don't know if they're selling front row seats for full price without a warning about the height of the stage, but if they are, I think that's a bit naughty."
They swore to me the stage wouldn't be made higher as in to collect the rain for P on P. B*****
