Plunge down the rabbit hole into a 21st-century asylum adventure. This bold re-imagining of Lewis Carroll’s exquisitely deranged tale of childhood and misunderstanding features an older-than-usual Alice encountering a world whose strangeness is rooted not in dreams but in the insanities of our own society. It is a place where the familiar becomes strange with enchanting and sometimes horrifying results.
Volcano’s ‘brave, stupid and beautiful’ brand of theatre is an intriguing match for Lewis Carroll’s story of the threshold between childhood and adulthood in a new production featuring Jenny Runacre (Jubilee,Brideshead Revisited, The Witches).
