Blue Raincoat Theatre Company’s engaging stage adaptation of Lewis Caroll’s much loved classic novel, Alice in Wonderland, has just embarked on a five-venue national tour across Ireland that includes a performance at Roscommon Arts Centre on on Saturday, October 21, at 8pm.
This classic literary tale has enthralled and engaged both children and adults alike, as they follow Alice who falls down a rabbit hole and lands into a fantasy world full of strange people and unpredictable events.
Originally adapted for the stage in 1998, the company re-presented a new production from the original script as part of its 25 year anniversary celebrations in 2016.
“It’s fantastic to continue working on this wonderful show with our ensemble and creative team,” said artistic director, Niall Henry. “Most of the ensemble have worked together for over 20 years and in that time the collaborations with Jocelyn as writer have produced some of our best work. We are really looking forward to bringing our Alice in Wonderland to new audiences around the country.”
Last year, Blue Raincoat celebrated 25 years as one of the most vibrant, creative and enduring independent theatre companies working outside of Dublin.
Alice in Wonderland, Blue Raincoat style, promises to be a fast-paced and physical re-telling of this classic story, and is one of the theatre highlights of Roscommon Arts Centre’s autumn/winter programme.
