Lewis Carroll's exquisitely deranged tale of childhood, misunderstanding and adventure.

It's all about as curious as it can be.

Plummet into an upside-down world where familiar things are made strange, with enchanting, hilarious and horrifying results.Alice in Wonderland is about the behaviour of one generation seen through the eyes of another. It is about the everyday monstrousness of the world around us.

Volcano sbrave, stupid and beautiful brand of theatre is an explosive and colourful match for Lewis Carroll s exquisitely deranged tale of childhood, misunderstanding and adventure. Volcano brings you an all-woman cast and an older-than-usual Alice, and the strangeness of the world she encounters is rooted in the insanities of our own. Approach the world with a child s sense of wonder and plunge down the rabbit-hole into a 21st-century asylum, full of ambition, distraction, uglification and derision.

Alice in Wonderland will be touring the UK from 30 September 2013.
