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.
