Reviews

Some of the fantastic reviews Alice has received so far...

Alice was side-splittingly funny as well as chokingly touching, and achieved a delicate balance between surreal humour and realist expression with some outstanding comic performances.

It’s exciting to see talented youngsters at the beginning of their careers. I recommend you visit Alice’s world.

Oxford Times

Alice is an amazing show. Imagine 5 talented young actors playing over 30 parts with verve and imagination. The playwright has taken the well-known story of Alice in Wonderland and used it in a most ingenious and moving way to illustrate the process of working through bereavement and the pain of loss. This is a 'must-see' show which is touring all round this region, finishing in The Unicorn Theatre, Abingdon at the end of February 2013.

Daily Info

A fantastic performance that you get completely caught up in. Great retelling of the Alice story with very talented actors. Touching, insightful and also very funny!

Daily Info

Despite a dark underlying story the actors have superb comic timing providing relief in Wonderland from quite a harrowing reality.

Catch this show – you won’t regret it.
