Brighton Fringe: A Paper Wonderland

Alice Promo Cropped

A brand new adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by award winning theatre company, Box Tale Soup at Brighton Fringe.

Box Tale Soup’s version of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has been created and adapted entirely by the company. It features a cast of just two human performers, a dozen colourful handmade puppets and a beautiful set that unfolds from a vintage trunk, alongside a magical soundtrack of original music composed especially for the show. From the surprising appearance of the Cheshire Cat to the madness of the Tea Party, this is a constantly inventive and refreshing take on Carroll’s classic work.

Alice Promo Cropped“Watching this beautifully crafted play I caught myself consistently forgetting that there were only two people on the stage… a whirlwind of puppetry and physically dynamic acting.” – DigYorkshire

“Two multi-skilled performers of great virtuosity, charm and resourcefulness.” Michael Pennington

An original adaptation written by the company, featuring handmade puppets, props and costume, the show draws on episodes from ‘Adventures in Wonderland’ and ‘Through the Looking Glass’. Performers Noel and Antonia have appeared in shows such as Doctor Who, HBO’s Game of Thrones, BBC’s The Hour and CBBC’s Mission 2110.
