In Wonderland

By Anna Cummer
Directed by Haysam Kadri

World Premiere
Based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass
Proscenium Stage

In this ambitious and contemporary retelling of Lewis Carroll’s classic novels, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, three actors fantastically portray the story’s iconic characters, transforming right before audience’s eyes. Follow Alice through the rabbit hole, and be swept away through theatre magic, as the stage spectacularly metamorphosizes into a stunning visual realm. In Wonderland is a world premiere, commissioned and developed by Alberta Theatre Projects, which revisits these timeless stories in a newly imagined way. Be guided through a journey of self-discovery, exploring the resonating themes that Alice reflects upon: “Who am I?” and “Where do I really want to be?”

This hilarious, heartfelt solo show, written and performed by dynamic Alberta theatre artist Louise Casemore, explores a simple but confounding question: What do you do with a used wedding dress? What follows is a real-time zero waste auction, as Casemore embodies each of the brides who have chosen to let their wedding gown go. Each woman has a unique, moving story to tell as Casemore morphs from character to character. Undressed is a World Premiere, commissioned and developed by Alberta Theatre Projects. It is a profoundly personal play full of humour and heart, with more than a few interactive surprises.
