Iris Theatre has followed up last summer’s success of Alice In Wonderland with a promenade adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice Through The Looking Glass in the gardens and grounds of St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden.
Laura Wickham has returned once again play Alice and complete her adventures in a fantastical topsy-turvy world.
Stepping through the surface of a magic mirror the audience joins Alice as she journeys across a checkerboard world filled with fantastical creatures and talking flowers.
Along the way, in a series of different locations around the church and its grounds, they meet friends, old and new, including the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, the Lion and the Unicorn, and Tweedledum and Tweedledee, before Alice has to face and battle the fearsome Jabberwock.
Alice through the Looking Glass, adapted by Daniel Winder and Candida Caldcott, opened last night and runs until August 30.
“We are delighted to welcome back Laura as Alice,” said director Daniel Winder.
“Candida and I wrote our adaptation of Alice specifically with Laura in mind and we are looking forward to seeing her complete her amazing adventures.
“It’s a fun-filled family story packed with music and song.”
Alice in Wonderland was short-listed for West End Frame’s London Fringe Production of the Year and played to delighted audiences throughout last summer.
