The ESC is proud to support this unique and amusing production reflecting our times, written and performed by Strasbourg’s talented Tagora team
Spoken mostly in English but also in French, it is broadly based on Lewis Carroll’s story, Alice in Wonderland, adapting many of the characters and songs to the more urgent subject of Brexit.
Eight o’clock on 24 June 2016, in a retirement care home somewhere in England, an elderly lady waits in her room to hear the official result of the referendum. She is anxious, constantly eyeing her looking-glass. Who is she, and who are all the carers in this curious establishment?
In this original creation by Tagora – mostly in English, but not exclusively – Alice sets out once more into the world imagined by Lewis Carroll, searching desperately for the White Rabbit whose magic watch can turn back time. She meets many old friends – the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum… But will she manage to find the White Rabbit in time?Her journey, told in scene and song, is directed by Louise Palmer.
