ESCAPE TO WONDERLAND
March 29, 2023 @ 7:30 pm
Presented by WhimsiCo Theatre
“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
Life is hard enough for the bookish Alice, an outcast with anxiety and a tendency to make jokes and remarks that are as confusing as they are nonsensical, without the pressures of life and growing up looming over her. On particularly difficult days, she dives into the stories of Wonderland. Stories of grinning cats, mad tea parties, and rabbits running out of time.
Moving away from the town she grew up in following her mother’s tragic death, there are many things she must leave behind. But Alice isn’t quite ready to leave all her memories, good and bad, in a home full to the brim with them. There are things she must do, memories still to make.
One last trip to her Wonderland.
Inspired by the words and stories of Lewis Carroll, WhimsiCo’s debut play Escape to Wonderland combines poetry, music, and prose to explore grief, love, identity, and growing up in a time when it is incredibly hard to do so.
