Alice

Synopsis:
Alice Hargreaves takes refuge in her dusty cellar, rediscovering her childhood amongst broken tennis racquets, old lamp shades and moth-eaten christening gowns. Meanwhile her son Alan, a WWI soldier, makes the same imaginary journey down the rabbit hole to escape the madness of war, animating the objects around him to return them both to a wonderland of talking rabbits, mad hatters and savage queens.

Notes:
Based on Lewis Carroll's literary classic and the real life Alice who inspired it, this poignant new play is brought imaginatively to life with Metta's trademark mix of theatre and puppetry.
