Wed 25th, Thurs 26th, Fri 27th April from 7.00pm starting in the school hall
This year’s school production is an adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in wonderland’ entitled: ‘Alice’s Library’. It explores Alice as a modern teenager and her difficult relationship with her busy and career driven parents.
The performance is promenade. This means that the audience will follow the actors as they move through a variety of performance spaces. Each space will have a designated seating area for the audience and walks between performance spaces will be brief.
Alice finds herself not falling down the rabbit hole, but locked into the worlds of people reading a variety of important books in her local library. Alice follows her sister through these books as she tries desperately to keep her safe, as instructed to by her mother. Through the content of the books and the characters she meets, Alice learns about her own life and a profound realisation is presented to her about the reasons for her poor parental relationship.
Books and plays read in Alice’s Library:
- William Shakespeare’s: Romeo and Juliet
- William Shakespeare’s: Hamlet
- Edgar Allen Poe’s: The Raven and The Tell Tale Heart
- Willy Russell’s: Blood Brothers
- Charles Dickens’: Oliver Twist
