While his father is distracted, Alex spots a white rabbit with a pocket watch who invites us all into Wonderland, where confusing creatures come out of surprising places and change before our eyes! Alex may have taken a long fall down a rabbit hole, but he doesn’t fall for the tricks and antics of a pedantic Caterpillar, a Mad Hatter, a tempestuous Queen of Hearts and more. In a land of uncertainty, our young lost protagonist struggles to learn who he is and how to speak up for himself.
This story by Lewis Carroll has delighted us for over 150 years, and our production is brought to life with an original score, colourful costumes, lights, and puppets of all shapes and dimensions. There are the exquisitely complex and beautiful shadow puppets, the adorable and ridiculous hand puppets and even the multiple-person caterpillar. In our version, Alex – who is experiencing his parents divorce and questioning his identity – escapes to this land of wonders to try to make some (non)sense of the world back home.
