Charlotte Howard, director of Bath Drama’s 2013 Christmas Play, The Lion and the Witch and the Wardrobe, has returned with a bigger and better production based on Lewis Carroll’s much-loved Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass characters.

This is an exciting opportunity to see a brand new show.

Charlotte has commissioned Alison Farina, writer of the acclaimed Blue Bird adaptation of last year to explore how what would have happened to Alice if she had grown up and been involved in WW1

Follow Alice back through the Looking Glass, and reencounter her childhood self and her familiar friends in the crazy upside-down world of Wonderland.

Revisit the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and the Walrus and the Carpenter’s picnic. Is there still jam tomorrow, or will the Caterpillar eat it all? Will the White Rabbit get there on time, and can anyone find the White Queen’s daughter?

This brand new family show uses comedy, music, dance and spectacular costumes to bring a seasonal message of peace and reconciliation. Adult Alice is bruised by her experience as a VAD nurse in World War I, but the healing magic of Wonderland brings her back to herself in a story which balances serious themes and sheer entertainment with a lightness of touch that will appeal to all.

Written by Alison Farina
Original Music by Moray Macdonald
Directed by Charlotte Howard
