Underneath A Magical Moon | Jacksons Lane | 2-24 Dec
Oooh, another JM Barrie related show for you (there have been a few of late) and this one is a re-imagining of ‘Peter Pan’ told directly from the point of view of central character Wendy Darling. Sounds like a delightful treat for your young fry aged 3+, get them all magically set up for the even more magical approach of a magical Christmas. If you go for the whole magical Christmas sorta thing. Head this way for info.

Orange Juice | Pleasance Theatre | 2 Dec
“Stuck between Ravi, his boisterously libidinous friend, and Miriam, his devout and traditional mother, Adam, a young British Pakistani Muslim is forced to discover who he really is, and who he wants to be. Adam is on the verge of becoming a man, but how easy is that transition?” This one-man play by Karim Khan looks rather promising, and features a live soundtrack of Indian classical music. See the venue website here for info.

Can You See Me Now? | Battersea Arts Centre | 2 Dec (pictured)
Brighton arts collective Miss Represented, which works with young women facing challenging life situations, have created this cross-genre performance comprising theatre, film and music. It depicts the experiences of a number of 13-21 year olds as they made their way through school, the care system and interactions with social services, and I am sure it’s got some important observations to make.
