Synopsis:

An adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s story, Alice’s well-known adventures are adapted for three Alices so that Alice can truly tell the Caterpillar that she does not know who she is because she has changed so many times since she woke up. These transformations are enacted through a magical transformation mirror which is part of the forest scenery. The play includes all the most dynamic and interesting of the characters she encounters in Wonderland and in the Looking Glass World. (From the CPO Website)
