Description

A well-loved family favourite. Have tea with the Mad Hatter, chase the White Rabbit and hear about the Jabberwocky in this modern adaptation complete with original music, dance and puppetry! Repurposing passages from Lewis Carroll’s classic stories, Permafrost Theatre Collective presents a bold reimagining of Alice, questioning preconceived notions of identity, womanhood and self-acceptance in a Mad Hatter world that constantly redraws the lines and rewrites the rules.

Original and fun version of this familiar story. The many Alices are great, the tea party was truly mad and the music held it all together. I particularly liked the use of books as musical instruments.
If you think you know the story of Alice in Wonderland, this production will show you a new perspective.

The marvel of the production is the allusive diversification of Alice: no longer remarkably Tenniel, she is every shape and size. This production has Alices with electric blue hair, Alices ballet dancing in tulle. There are other beautiful pearls of 21st century wisdom woven into Lewis Carroll’s characters, that transcend the audience for which he wrote. Overall, it is a charming twist focusing not on the tale, but Alice herself. It is undoubtedly a production brimming with talent, and whose victory is that everybody is Alice: a metaphor of inclusivity that proves anybody can be the heroine.
