REVIEWS (from Autumn 2015)
"Expect the unexpected" British Theatre Guide
“Magical, complete madness. Have not been so entertained for years.”
“I have been in Lewis Carroll’s (& Alice’s) Wonderland and I mean IN! An awe-inspiring evening”
“I loved it and I am 67 years old…I watched a little boy whose little face was a picture!”
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!
2018 marks 150 years since Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) purchased a home for his sisters in Guildford. To celebrate this anniversary, we're very excited to be re-staging our 2015 sell-out, multi-venue adaptation, where you'll join Alice on her curious adventures in Wonderland.
For this immersive production you will be starting in the church where Carroll preached: St Mary’s…but that
is only the beginning! From there you will follow Alice and the White Rabbit on a magical journey through
Experience Guildford Museum as you’ve never seen it before and just be careful you don’t lose your head in the Castle Keep…who knows, by the end maybe you too may believe in “as many as six impossible things before breakfast”, Just like Alice!
DID YOU KNOW? In 1868 Carroll purchased The Chestnuts, a house for his sisters next to the Castle ruins. His relationship with Guildford continued for another 30 years, until his death in Guildford. His funeral took place in St Mary’s Church in 1898. Our Co-Founder, Matt Pinches, will be discussing Carroll's time in Guildford on Sunday 7 Oct as part of the opening weekend of the Guildford Book Festival.
IMPORTANT This is a promenade performance, visiting different venues; therefore part of the action will take place outside as you move between properties. GSC regret that due to the limitations of the venues, Alice in Wonderland is not suitable forwheelchair users. Those with limited mobility, please call the Box Office with regards to any specific requirements and we will do a very best to accommodate you. The full route is approx. 500 yards and will involve some steps and steep paths.
