The Playground Theatre. From Mar 26th through Mar 28th, 2008.
The Playground Theatre, located at 9806 NE 2nd Avenue in Miami, is presenting a fresh and local Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. In this contemporary adaptation of the world-renowned classic English fairy tale by Lewis Carroll, a girl named Alice takes a wonder-filled journey and meets remarkable characters like the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, Mock Turtle and Caterpillar. This version on stage at The Playground Theatre was adapted and directed by Stephanie Ansin.
The tale is filled with allusions to Dodgson’s friends and enemies, and to the lessons that British schoolchildren were expected to memorize. The tale plays with logic in ways that have made the story of lasting popularity with adults as well as children. It is considered to be one of the most characteristic examples of the genre of literary nonsense, and its narrative course and structure has been enormously influential, mainly in the fantasy genre.
