Photo Flash: First Look at Iris Theatre's ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS
Laura Wickham is returning to once again play Alice and complete her adventures in a fantastical topsy-turvy world. Stepping through the surface of a magic mirror the audience join Alice as she journeys across a checkerboard world filled with fantastical creatures and talking flowers. Along the way, in a series of different locations around the church and its grounds, they will meet friends, old and new, including the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, the Lion and the Unicorn, and Tweedledum and Tweedledee, before Alice has to face and battle the fearsome Jabberwock.
Alice in Wonderland was shortlisted for West End Frame's London Fringe Production of the Year and played to delighted audiences throughout the summer.
