Alice of The House of Carroll
National Pastime Theater Company in conjunction with Clock Productions presents a story you know by heart, but one that you have never seen like this before. Alice of the House of Carroll grabs you by the throat and kicks you down the rabbit hole into a wonderland filled with maniacs and thieves and where love melds with aggression.
At last, the National Pastime Theater lifts Alice out of her comfortable place in childrens theater and thrusts her onto the city streets of late 19th century Chicago. Like our world today, Chicago at that time was a world that needed to rebuild. Alice, a pleasant little girl, pulses with an instability that is common to everyone and in particular, to a world, like ours, that seems to be disappearing down a rabbit hole. THIS SHOW IS NOT FOR CHILDREN OF ANY AGE.
As in the original Alice, this Alice is attempting to determine who she is and what constitutes her identity in a world that actively challenges her perspective and sense of self. Her quest to understand her world becomes a quest to understand the forces and feelings that comprise her identity.
Alice of the House of Carroll was written by Keely Haddad-Null and Laurence Bryan. It will be directed by Laurence Bryan for the National Pastime Theater in conjunction with Clock Productions.
