Alice in Wonderland
by Susan Mosley published March 2014

The author has crafted a pantomimic version of Lewis Carrolls classic tale with all the elements of a traditional panto: principal girl and boy, Dame, villain and comedy duo; all this while remaining faithful to the familiar plot.
Alice and her sister Lorinda are having a picnic in the countryside. Following an encounter with the White Rabbit she falls down a rabbit hole and finds herself in Wonderland. She is followed by her sister and her mother, Flora Dora. At the Royal Palace she meets a host of characters including the Mad Hatter, Tweedledum & Tweedledee, and the King and Queen of Hearts. At a croquet match Alice incurs the wrath of the Queen, and she is put on trial. After an encounter with the Jabberwocky the Queen is routed and all ends happily.
