Through the Looking-Glass

Production Tips for
Through the Looking-Glass

adapted by Lindsay Price from Lewis Carroll

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.

Tips from the Author

If I had one tip for producing this play it would be to remind students to believe the world and present the world as true. These are unique characters and they are far off the beaten path. But for them, their world is normal. That is what is so absurd about it all. Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee don’t wink at each other over the absurdness of Wonderland, it is their everyday life.

If actors "mug" or play up the silliness of their character it will lessen the impact, both on Alice and the audience. And besides, it’s so much more fun to believe in Wonderland!
