Description
The White Rabbit is late for the Duchess. The Cheshire Cat won't stop grinning. And the Hatter is, well, mad. In the middle of it all is Alice, a young girl with a vivid imagination and a family life that's less than perfect. Follow Alice as she escapes her Sheffield home to find adventure in a topsy-turvy world. Based on Lewis Carroll's classic tale, Alice breathes fresh life into a much-loved story about rabbit holes, pocket watches and talking caterpillars. Sheffield native Laura Wade brings you Wonderland as you've never seen it before. Alice was first presented in June 2010 at the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield.
