Five actors take the stage in this delightfully diverse adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel. Found objects, puppetry, acrobatics and a variety of other stage magic transports Alice to a mystical land of wonder where she must make sense of a world that only – ever so slightly – resembles her own. The company members don multiple characters to help Alice work her way through Wonderland and back home.
