“You can be the White Queen’s Pawn, if you like. You’re in the Second Square to begin with: when you get to the Eighth Square you’ll be a Queen.”

Alice is back in Wonderland and things are more confusing than ever – Flowers talk, the White Queen cries before she pricks her finger, and there’s a life-sized chess game going on. Alice wants to play, but mostly wants to be queen. Will she make it to the eighth square?

A fantastical physical journey for both actor and audience.

A great companion to Alice by the same author.
