Alice Through the Looking Glass


Alice promo

The story of Through the Looking-Glass is a family favourite, following Alice’s fantastical adventures in the strange world she enters through the mirror above her drawing-room fireplace.

What she finds there is a world laid out in the form of a giant chess board and before long Alice finds herself entering the game as a white pawn. The story follows her travels across the board until she reaches the eighth square and is finally crowned a queen.

Alice Through the Looking Glass is packed full of Carroll’s most memorable and enduring characters as well as many of his finest nonsense poems and songs and Michael Whitmore’s delightful adaptation captures all the quirky charm of the original in a fanciful and fabulous treat for all the family.

Quantum Theatre produces and tours original work and adaptations of the classics into theatres, schools and outdoor venues throughout the UK and Ireland. All Quantum’s output is written (or adapted) and produced by the artistic director, Michael Whitmore who has evolved Quantum’s characteristic style; pacey, humorous theatre accessible to all ages whether it be Michael’s own plays or his adaptations of the classics such as Shakespeare and Beatrix Potter.
