Beyond the Fringe

Permafrost Theatre Collective, in partnership with The Chameleon Fools Theatre Troupe and in association with C venues, will be presenting a new Wonderland tale at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival August 14th – 26th. “In this bold reimagining, every actor in the all female/non-cis cast plays Alice at one point or other in the story. Built around repurposed passages from Lewis Carroll’s classic stories, Are You Alice: A New Wonderland Tale asks questions of identity, womanhood, and self-acceptance in a world which constantly redraws the lines and rewrites the rules.

“Iconic images such as The Jabberwock, The Mad Hatter’s Tea-Party, and The Queen of Hearts are brought to life using original music, dance, puppetry, and more in this multidisciplinary production [whose aim is] to create a universal ‘Alice’ for the 21st Century.” The trailer can be seen here.
