Lewis Carroll tells his most famous stories to his niece Alice, bringing to life the Mad Hatter, Red Queen, Cheshire Cat and many more well loved characters that embody the illogical and nonsensical adult world, and illuminate the complex life of the whimsical and often melancholy author.

‘Haunting and enchanting… ninety minutes of sheer uninterrupted magic.’

Patrons Advice: Whilst based on the works of Lewis Carroll, this is not a typical children's theatre adaption. Some adult themes. Recommended for ages 13+
