Overview

ZooNation’s fun and thought-provoking take on Lewis Carroll’s iconic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland characters is reimagined for the unique space of the Roundhouse.

Young psychotherapist Ernest has a PhD in normalization, but he has his work cut out for him. At his new job in the Institute for Extremely Normal Behaviour, his patients all seem to be a long way from being ‘normal’. There’s Alice, who doesn’t know what size her body should be. The White Rabbit’s OCD means he’s always late. And the Queen of Hearts seems to have a serious problem controlling her anger.

Artistic Director, Kate Prince, works with musical collaborators Josh Cohen and DJ Walde, using their exuberant and accessible style to explore Lewis Carroll’s original story in 21st century way.
