ALICE IN WONDERLAND
At The Tobacco Factory Theatre
Monday 7 – Saturday 12 October 2013
Start time: 8pm
Step into an upside-down world where familiar things are made strange, with enchanting and horrifying results. Alice in Wonderland is about crossing the threshold between childhood and adulthood, and about the behaviour of one generation seen through the eyes of another. It is about things not being as they should be.
Volcano’s “brave, stupid and beautiful” (audience comment) brand of theatre is an intriguing match for Lewis Carroll’s exquisitely deranged tale of childhood, misunderstanding and adventure. Volcano brings you an older-than-usual Alice, in a production where the strangeness of the world she encounters is not supernatural but deeply rooted in the insanities of our culture and society.
