If you enjoyed Tim Burton's dark depiction of Alice in Wonderland, then you will thoroughly enjoy this short play that depicts a similarly unusual take on the classic tale. While the original Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was written by Lewis Carroll, this adaptation was scripted by the mysterious S.S.B.
This version of Alice in Wonderland features familiar characters. The titular Alice is a young girl who accidentally journeys to a mysterious land that exceeds even the far reaches of her imagination. There, she meets an array of unusual figures.
Other characters include the prim and proper March Hare, who anxiously reminds others of the rules they must live by; the Mad Hatter, who reminds others to break those rules and think outside the boxes society might place around them; and the Queen of Hearts, who somewhat villainously puts Alice and everyone else in their place.
As with any version of Alice in Wonderland, the reader must suspend their disbelief to thoroughly enjoy this story. It is after all, a fanciful depiction of a young girl's wildest imaginings and perhaps her greatest fears. As Carroll wrote: "Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." Of course, readers will thoroughly enjoy this text at any time of day.
