FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Telluride Theatre’s professional company (formerly SquidShow Theatre) presents a world-premiere production:
Alice Underground: playing February 7th-10th, 8pm, at the Palm Theater.
Charles Dodgson was one of the most fascinating literary figures in Victorian England, however you would never know it if you bumped into him at a party. Dodgson was a respected math professor at Christ’s Church in Oxford, but he led a double-life. In 1864, Charles Dodgson, using the pen name Lewis Carroll, authored the monumental Wonderland books, continuing on to create other works of wild fantasy and poetry. But from where did the humble math professor draw his ideas? His real life was more mysterious than Alice’s journeys through Wonderland. “Alice Underground” explores Charles Dodgson/Lewis Carroll’s life as it descends down the rabbit hole to the creatures of Wonderland. A completely original work of theatre, overflowing with nonsense, contrary logic, childishness, and storytelling Alice Underground is not to be missed. Don’t expect Wonderland.
