Pinkhouse Productions & Ophelia Theatre Group Present YOUR ALICE At BAM Fisher
Your Alice by Billie Aken-Tyers opens Off-Broadway for a limited-engagement before heading across the pond to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Produced by Pink House Productions LLC. and Ophelia Theatre Group, Your Alice runs at BAM's Fishman Space May 23-26 at 7:30 p.m. and May 26 and 27 at 2:00 p.m. The story follows Charles Dodgson (pen name Lewis Carroll) as he tells his child muse, Alice, her favorite story for the last time. As they sail down the Oxford River, his beloved characters weave the audience in and out of Wonderland and through his tortured relationship with 10-year-old Miss Liddel.
The show, poignant and topical with West End ambitions, has been described as "a fresh voice in the #metoo age. Your Alice puts preconceptions of Victorian morals up to our looking glass." - Lewis Flinn, Broadway Composer & Lyricist
