“Lewis Carroll has [written] a charming book, where those thousands of children who have laughed over the adventures of Alice, that most delightful of little girls, may follow their heroine through a new wonderland. This realm of marvels is Looking-glass House.”” The Manchester Guardian

An NAC English Theatre Production in association with Stratford Festival
A madly inventive coming-of-age story for everyone!. When Alice enters the Looking-Glass World, she experiences fantastical adventures with a dizzying array of extraordinary characters – rival queens, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the White Knight and many others. This classic sequel to Alice in Wonderland is a surreal and stunning Victorian vaudeville – high-end, low-tech fantasy from NAC English Theatre Artistic Director Jillian Keiley and celebrated designer Bretta Gerecke. Alice is superb family entertainment with audience interaction, zany characters and flamboyant design.
