Your Alice by Billie Aken-Tyers
On the golden afternoon of July 4th, 1862, Charles Dodgson (pen name Lewis Carroll) tells his child muse, Alice, her favourite story for the last time. As they sail down the Oxford River, his beloved characters weave us in and out of Wonderland and through his tortured relationship with 10-year-old Miss Liddel.
Originally produced at The Ophelia Theatre to sold-out runs, Your Alice opens at BAM's Fisher Space in May 2018 and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2018. Produced by Pink House Productions, LLC. and Ophelia Theatre Group.
Your Alice runs approximately 75 minutes with no intermission.
There are some mature themes that may not be suitable for children.
