Ophelia Theatre Group's new drama explores the complex and dynamic friendship between Lewis Carroll and his muse Alice Liddell, the inspiration for 'Alice in Wonderland.'

... Read more

On the golden afternoon of July 4, 1862, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) began to tell a story that would become a classic beloved by both children and adults. But what about the first ears that heard this story? As Charles and Alice sail the day away, the songs, words, and whimsical characters of Wonderland are pitted against the demons of a man struggling to keep himself afloat. 'Your Alice' is part of Ophelia Theater Group's 'Turning the Page' season, featuring adaptations and original plays inspired by iconic literary works.
