Currently on Broadway, starring Bette Midler, I'll Eat You Last is nominated for the 2013 Drama League awards for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play.

Based on the real individuals that inspired J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan and Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, Peter and Alice tells the story of when Alice Liddell Hargreaves met Peter Llewelyn Davies at the opening of a Lewis Carroll exhibition in 1932. Currently playing to acclaim in the West End, Judi Dench stars as Alice and Ben Whishaw as Peter in this new play where enchantment and reality collide.
