'It's a great huge game of chess that's being played - all over the world - if this is the world at all,you know. Oh, what fun it is!"
In the world through the Looking-Glass, flowers talk, books are written backwards, trains jump over rivers and no-one will be sensible. Alice argues, cajoles and wonders her way across the chess-board land in her quest to become queen, but will she ever make sense of the world behind the looking-glass?
InsideOut Theatre Company presents a new exploration of this fascinating, frustrating and captivating story, using vibrant projected images to create a world where the colours are brighter, the sounds louder, and the logic sillier. The cast will play tricks on us by filling the stage with doubles; Red Queen, White Queen, Tweedledurn, Tweedledee, even Alice will be played by two actresses, allowing her to vanish and reappear at impossible speed. This stunningly beautiful production will electrify children and adults alike.
