The Looking Glass Wars unabashedly challenges the world's Carrollian Wonderland assumptions of tea parties, dormice and a curious little blonde girl to reveal an epic, cross dimensional saga of love, murder, betrayal, revenge and the endless war for Imagination. And The Alley Theater got the adaptation rights FIRST! So, come down in December and meet the heroic, passionate, monstrous, vengeful denizens of this parallel world as they battle each other with orb generators, navigate the Crystal Continuum, and slip each other the poisonous pink mushroom. Alyss Heart, heir to the Wonderland throne, was forced to flee through the Pool of Tears after a bloody coup staged by the murderous Redd shattered her world. Lost in Victorian London, Alyss is befriended by an aspiring author to whom she tells the heartbreaking story of her young life only to see it published as the nonsensical children's sojourn Alice in Wonderland. Alyss had trustEd Lewis Carroll to tell the truth so that someone might find her and bring her home. But Carroll had got it all wrong. If not for Hatter Madigan, she may have become just another society woman sipping tea in a too-tight bodice instead of returning to Wonderland to battle Redd for her rightful place as the Queen of Hearts.
