Through the Looking Glass (and What Alice Found There)
Murdoch Theatre Company’s upcoming production, Through the Looking Glass, is an adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s sequel to his famous Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. This fantastical show is directed by Jordan D’Arcy, with assistance from Sabrina Wyatt and is to be performed at Studio 411 on Murdoch University’s South Street campus. Show dates will be the 28th, 29th, and 30th of November at 7pm
special 2pm matinees to cater for younger audiences on the 28th and 30th.
One sleepy afternoon while playing chess by herself, Alice sees the real Red Queen through the looking glass. Alice enters the looking glass into a world of strange back-to-front magic. Stepping through the mirror, she meets the kings and queens of her chess set. The world inside the glass is marked out as a chess board, across which she must travel as a pawn. She meets talking flowers, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, sees Humpty Dumpty fall from his wall, meets the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, and witnesses the furious battle between the Lion and the Unicorn fighting for the crown. The gentle White Knight rescues her from the cruel Red Knight, as she is able to reach the eighth square and become queen. Or is it all a dream?
Through the Looking Glass features a large range of actors, many of whom have not worked on productions shown at Murdoch before; there is a large age range in the cast – from 15 to 29. The cast and crew also have a varied amount of experience between them, with some veterans of community theatre, and others completely new to the scene. The team is extremely excited to share their hard work with eager audiences.
