Alice in Wonderland

Text and stage direction
Hugo Bélanger

Adapted from Lewis Carroll’s classic

Follow The Rabbit!

Alice refuses to do her homework. Preferring to play and day-dream, she hides in her father’s study. Out of nowhere comes a curious looking rabbit, eater of novels. Wanting to keep the rodent from devouring all the books, Alice chases the rabbit through his borough and discovers a wonderland.

Late for his appointment with the Queen of Hearts, the Rabbit leaves Alice in a hurry, but forgets his gloves. These gloves he must wear in the sovereign’s presence otherwise: “Off with his head!”.

Eager to save the Rabbit’s life, Alice dashes to his rescue and encounters strange and fascinating characters such as Humpty Dumpty the egg, a philosophizing Caterpillar, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and the Snark Hunter, in this intriguing universe where rabbits are late and quarrels make good friends.

Faithful to the madness and the lively humour of the original piece, this revisitation of the famous Lewis Caroll’s classic tale has a unique twist: the setting is no longer a garden but a library full of pop-up books! Each book is then a discovery and a door to the next adventure. As much as it is a praise of reading, Alice in Wonderland is also a gateway to the imagination… Will you follow the white rabbit?
