Heartbreak Productions return to the Botanical Gardens this week with Alice – An Extraordinary Adventure, a new adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s evergreen classic.

Join Alice on an enchanted journey that leads her to a chaotic underground world. Meet the White Rabbit,the Mad Hatter, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and a whole host of other quirky characters and enter a dreamlike world full of colour,song and rhyme ruled by a crazy, croquet‐playing Queen with very little heart and a very shorttemper.

Heartbreak’s energetic adaptation by Dani Carbery blends both of Lewis Carroll’s volumes, Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass, to produce a fast‐paced production under the direction of Peter Mimmack and full of engaging dialogue, inspiring music and magical adventure.

The role of Alice is played by Lily Carrie and other parts are shared by Rhian McLean, Alex Moore and Nathan Smith. The design is by Kate Wragg and music has been composed by Andy Guthrie.

Alice – An Extraordinary Adventure is at the Botanical Gardens on Friday with two performances on Saturday.

In their 21st year of touring open air theatre, Heartbreak will be back at the Botanical Gardens next week with a new version of Dracula from Thursday, August 22, to Saturday.
