No Strapline

Alice in Wonderland

Friday 18 November–Saturday 28 January 2023

New Vic Theatre

By Lewis Carroll
Adapted and directed by Theresa Heskins

Revisit the greatest children’s story of all time this Christmas, and join us as we take a trip to Wonderland!

Journey with Alice as she follows the White Rabbit into a curiously enchanting new world, filled with even curioser characters.

As she searches for a way home, Alice encounters strange and whimsical people: a disappearing cat with a grin wider than she’s ever seen, a Mad Hatter whose tea party never quite serves tea, and a bad tempered Queen who is looking for her jam tarts…

An adventure like no other, Alice In Wonderland is filled with fun, laughter and lots of magical moments. Brought to life in the New Vic’s sensational trademark style, this is a story that will give the young – and young at heart – a joyful festive treat this year!

Running time: Approximately 2 hours, including one interval of 20 minutes
