A young muse. A suppressed obsession. A relationship questioned to this day.
Set in a period dubbed the ‘Victorian cult of the child’, our play explores the blurred lines between appreciation and sexualisation of the child form. This psychedelic production illustrates the controversial relationship between Charles Dodgson, otherwise known as Lewis Carroll, and his friend Alice Liddell, twenty years his junior. As his romantic feelings for Alice grow, so do her parents’ suspicion, with his suppression manifesting in Britain’s best loved children’s book: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
