Adapted from Lewis Carroll’s classic Written and directed by Hugo Bélanger Translated by Maureen Labonté A production of Tout à Trac Alice refuses to do her schoolwork. She prefers to play and daydream in her father’s study where she stumbles across a strange rabbit that nibbles on books. Wanting to stop him from eating all the books, she follows him into his rabbit hole. That is how she discovers Wonderland, a world inhabited by many strange characters: an egg sitting on a wall who is afraid to fall, a philosopher caterpillar, a mad hatter, the queen of a castle of cards who loves to cut off heads… an intriguing universe where the rabbits are always late and where arguments lead to friendship. Faithful to the unbridled humour and madness of the original tale, this adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s famous book is crammed with surprises which bring the vast range of colourful characters to life. Prepare to be amazed by the ingenious set in which we discover that each book becomes a door to the next adventure. An homage to reading, Alice in Wonderland becomes a window into our imagination. Will you follow the white rabbit?
