Alice Through the Looking Glass

30 July - 30 August

After the success of 2013 Iris Theatre returns for a 6th year of its celebrated summer season in the gardens of St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden. Following on from our 2013 smash hit family show, Lewis Carroll’s Alice through the Looking Glass will be presented throughout the month of August.

Iris’ brand new production of Alice through the Looking Glass will take us back into the fantastical world of Lewis Carroll’s Alice. Stepping through the surface of a magic mirror the audience will join Alice as she journeys across a checkerboard world filled with fantastical creatures and talking flowers.

On the way she will meet friends, old and new; the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, the Lion and the Unicorn, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, before facing the fearsome Jabberwock to win her crown. Returning from last summer the writing team of Daniel Winder and Candida Calidcot will ensure this fun, family story will be packed full of music and song.
