Synopsis

TWAS Theatre’s adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice In Wonderland’ is a shortened version of the traditional tale. We follow Alice as she falls down the rabbit hole and meets the White Rabbit, who is of course late for a very important date. As Alice sets herself on her journey through wonderland she is guided by Tweedle Dee, Dum & Doo to the Mad Hatter’s tea party. She learns at the tea party that the White Rabbit has been captured by the evil Queen Of Hearts. Alice and her new friends decided it’s time to stand up to the Queen and save their friend.

Extract

Alice: What?

 

Hatter: For tea

 

Chesh: It’s tea time

 

Alice: Surely not, I fell down the rabbit hole at tea time and I feel I’ve been here for

hours!

 

Dormouse: No rabbit holes around here Miss Alice

 

Hatter: Rabbits don’t live in holes in Wonderland. Stupid girl

 

D’s: Uncivilised!

 

Dormouse: Why live in a hole if you can have a house?

 

Hatter: Rabbits wouldn’t show up to a Hatter’s tea party without a hat either!

 

D’s: Uncivilised!

 

Alice: Well, all the same it can’t be tea time

 

Hare: It’s always tea time

 

Hatter: Time for tea, time for tea. More tea more tea!
