Story by Lewis Carrol
Dramatized by The Manhattan Project
Directed By Ashley Zeh

Alice plunges down the rabbit hole and becomes involved in that madcap and deliciously satiric series of adventures immortalized by Lewis Carroll. Dramatized as a series of fourteen episodes from Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. A kaleidoscope of action and madness, with the necessary elements of suspense and frustration to make it all work.

Age recommendation: Suitable for all ages
Run time: 2 hours including one intermission

THE STORY: Everyone is familiar with Alice’s antic adventures, and they are all here—but with an arresting difference. From the presumed innocence of the original is drawn a caustic and giddy revelation of the human psyche and the dark, unsettling shadows which can linger there. Freud and Jung, Kafka and Dali, all make their presences felt, in a piece of pure theatre that is full of truth, fun, terror and uncanny pertinence to our own topsy-turvy times. As T.E. Kalem comments: “ALICE is an exemplary instance of how a classic can be made ‘new,’ and one of the extremely rare instances of a book’s being turned into a wholly satisfactory theatrical experience.”
A critical and popular success in New York, as a presentation of The Manhattan Project (from the New York University School of the Arts), this exuberant, funny and strikingly pertinent version of Lewis Carroll’s classic went on to enjoy the unique distinction of a record-setting world tour. “Fantastic! Indeed, add any other hooray words you like. They celebrate Andre Gregory’s staging of ALICE IN WONDERLAND.” —NY Times. “…an exciting, absorbing, vertiginous descent into a laughing hell.” —Time Magazine.
