Alice in Wonderland

adapted for the stage by Mary Elizabeth Burke-Kennedya co-production between Landmark Productions and The Helix

Curiouser and curiouser, thought Alice, as she tumbled down the rabbit hole.

She’d never seen a bottle saying Drink Me before … or a Cat who was nothing but a grin … or a Duchess with a very strange baby indeed. What could it all mean?

Come down the rabbit hole with Alice (and the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and other friends) and join us in a wonderful, upside-down world where each surprise is bigger – or sometimes smaller – than the last.
