14 students from Theatretrain Reading recently took their production “Alice” to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The project was totally self funded through gofundme.com
It was a spectacular reinvention of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale. Packed with all the characters we remember and love, 14 talented actors presented a physically dynamic tour-de-force through Victorian England and Wonderland. “Alice” used imaginative puppetry, striking stage images and circus fun to explore each adventure. With infectious energy, vibrant ensemble sequences and an exciting twist on an old classic.
‘Speechless, I did not expect this show to be so powerful, I was blown away!’
‘Fantastic, amazing energy!’
‘Amazing performance! They brought Alice to realise her changes from a child to an independent woman who will not be bullied, ignored or equal to anyone’. – Cllr Edwards, The Mayor of Reading
