Through the Looking Glass
It's been exactly six months since Alice tumbled into Wonderland, but her adventures aren't behind her yet. Sitting inside on a snowy night with her kittens, she wonders what the world is like on the other side of the mirror, and as she climbs upon the mantel to see, she finds she can step right through to an alternate world where everything is not quite right. Books have nonsense words printed backwards, the chess set has come to life, and outside is a beautiful sunny day filled with talking flowers. But things aren't all magical in the mirror word. The malevolent Red Queen who rules there believes in using an iron fist—and she's planning on staying in the throne for a long, long time. To save the world she's discovered (as well as get back to her own), Alice must join forces with the White Knight, cross a perilous chess board filled with nursery-rhyme characters, and summon all the courage she has. Throughout her adventures, a score written by Piers Chater Robinson and Chris Blackwood adds a musical dazzle to the looking-glass world and proves once and for all that plays can in fact have songs in them.
