One humdrum summer afternoon, the bright and inquisitive Alice follows a rabbit down a hole and enters a bizarre fantasy world. With a magical mix of characters and a weird and wonderful backdrop, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland appears to be just that.

Yet its appeal endures as more than just an enchanting tale. Using a hazy mix of riddle and satire, humour and angst, Lewis Carroll creates faces and places that represent the many challenges and mysteries we all have to confront as we cast off our youthful innocence.

Exploring the hidden themes to Lewis Carroll’s ageless tale, this enticing performance sees our beloved Alice shine a light through the claustrophobic gloom of a clandestine fantasy world. Alice does more than follow a white rabbit down a hole; she makes an escape for the unknown, taking her innocence underground in a provocative journey into the depths of adolescence.

This ingenious modern reworking of a treasured story with a close Oxford association uses physical theatre and abstract, expressionistic techniques to make some sense of the nonsense.
