Twelve Pound Look

Pleasure Dome Theatre Company’s revival of JM Barrie’s lesser-known comedy The Twelve-Pound Look is now available to watch online.

The production, in collaboration with theatre company Betwixt-and-Between, was originally staged from 28 May to 5 June 2021 at the new Exmoor Studios in Dulverton in Somerset, directed by Scott Le Crass.

It has been filmed at the theatre and is now available on demand for streaming via until 2 July 2021.

Featuring the voice of legendary screen and stage actor Susan George, it has a four-strong cast of Daniel Arbon, Charlotte Ellen, Scott Le Crass and Helena Payne.

It was adapted by Charlotte Ellen of Betwixt-and-Between who has produced the show with Helena Payne of Pleasure Dome. Filming was by Middle Realm Productions.

JM Barrie is best known for creating Peter Pan as well as writing plays such as Quality Street, The Admirable Crichton, Dear Brutus and Mary Rose.

The Twelve-Pound Look, first staged in 1910, is described by Pleasure Dome as a “funny and surprisingly modern twist on domestic bliss”.

Betwixt-and-Between was founded in 2019 and their first show was a take on Barrie’s Peter Pan, called Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. It was staged in London, Dumfries and Edinburgh and was due to tour the UK before Covid-19 hit.

Pleasure Dome is based in Exmoor, formed to stage theatre in The Valley of Rocks near Lynton in North Devon, but more recently it has been working on productions for the newly created Exmoor Studios.

Tickets are available to watch Twelve-Pound Look via, for 22-hour slots, from today for £12.50 plus a £2.50 booking fee. It will be available to watch until 2 July 2021.
