Alice is an ambulatory, multi-disciplinary theatrical experience. The audience, traveling in groups of 15, follows a white rabbit to various locations throughout the Main-Dempster Mile in Evanston. Ducking into storerooms and back patios, through stores and taverns and galleries, the audience IS Alice and the Main-Dempster Mile shopping district becomes a wonderland. Chapters of the book are divided amongst Evanston and Chicago theater companies, visual and film artists and performed in the various locations throughout the neighborhood. |

*Although there is nothing too inappropriate in the show, we want you to be aware it is not designed to be children's entertainment and is probably best for kids 10 and up (though we have had younger children in the past couple weeks and they had lots of fun. If you do bring children, we just ask that you please keep them within arm's reach due to traffic and stairs and whatnot.
**Alice requires walking and standing for extended stretches, and ascending and descending three different staircases. We are working on an accessible version. For information, please use the contact form on the website at www.upendedproductions.com

Upended Productions' Alice is supported in part by the Evanston Arts Council and lots of generous help from the Main-Dempster Mile SSA.
[Alice] displays impeccable logistic skill and a striking sense of space; in the best environmental theatre tradition, it renews the audiences sense of wonder at their surroundings.
