Immersive theatre at its best: get lost in the world of Alice in Wonderland, but with a surreal twist.
This take on the children’s classic by Lewis Carroll transports viewers to 150 years after the events of the novel, where, with the help of various characters audience members help uncover mysteries. As you work your way through the impressive sets, from the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party to the Queen of Heart’s court, you’ll feel part of the adventure every step of the way.
The surreal twist on the original gives the play a sinister – yet enjoyable – edge, so it’s not one for the kiddies. Likewise, it’s not recommended for those who suffer from claustrophobia or have limited mobility – there is a lot of ducking and climbing up and down stairs.
When you enter, the audience is split into groups of four, so you may spend part of the time away from whomever you came with, but don’t fear, you’ll soon meet up with them again.
Overall, this is an exceptionally enjoyable play, and certainly different from your average London theatre trip – well worth a visit.
The show times are staggered throughout the evening and each experience – which promises to be different from the next – will last approximately one and a half hours.
