Mad as a Hatter
A world premiere by Michigan playwright Michael Alan Herman.
Theophilus Carter is content with his small tailors shop on High Street, thank you very much. But when his best friend publishes a nonsense book called Alices Adventures in Wonderland and uses him as the inspiration for The Mad Hatter, his sensible shop becomes a mad house of Londoners trying to get a peek at the real Mad Hatter. As Theo struggles to maintain his simple life, and Lewis Carroll roars to success as one of Englands greatest authors, a puckish young woman named Alice finds her way back into the Hatters life. As a real world look into the lives that made Wonderland, Mad as a Hatter explores the burden of nostalgia, the whimsy of madness, and the undeniable power of play.
