David Catlin, director of the Lookingglass Alice Theatre Company and also responsible for writing this stage adaptation, was quoted as saying "It's my way of telling my daughter ‘Slow down, savor childhood', and also reminding grownups how to play." In his rendition, Catlin sends Alice through the looking glass over her mantle, into a chessboard world. Passing tests and trials, the play chronicles her journey through ridiculous circumstances, tracing her path from Pawn to Queen. Reconstructing the Alliance stage to accommodate the high-flying fancies of Carroll and Catlin, this performance will leave you starry-eyed, clutching the edge of your seat!
