Peter Panto

8:30pm, St Mary's College Dining Hall

It's that time of year again! St Mary's College annual panto is back. Wendy Darling has just graduated from Durham University. But with her parents wanting her to move away from home and get her own job, she gets a visit from her old uni friend Peter Pan, who takes her back to Durham in order to try and convince her not to grow up and stay at university forever. However, Peter is dealing with problems of his own, as he struggles with abandonment issues, evil pirates (also known as the Hatfield rowers), pretty girls and the Durham locals.
