Downtown Art to Present 'THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS,' Begin. 2/21
Downtown Art presents Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There an original adaptation of Lewis Carroll's odd, humorous, logical adventure of a seven year old girl in a strange new country.
In 1871, Lewis Carroll published his follow-up to Alice's popular trip down the rabbit hole: Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There. What did she find? A large and complex game played across the entire landscape, a queer, eccentric set of inhabitants who corrected everything she did or said, and a preponderance of logical explanations that made no sense at all. Could make you consider, for instance, the experiences immigrants have in a new country.... or that children have when confronted by the confident, didactic, absolutely inexplicable adult world.
Recommended for people of all ages (except those younger than 6 who would be appalled and bored to tears by Lewis Carroll's humor - we beg you to spare them the ordeal.)
