The Wandsworth Arts Fringe (WAF) is coming up in May, and we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be transferring last year’s WAF production, Alice in Wonderland by Richard Stratton, to the Battersea Library (Clapham Junction) 2-16th May 2015*.
It’s especially exciting because 2015 is the 150th anniversary of the original book’s publication by writer Lewis Carroll.
The show will be directed by Blackshaw’s Managing & Artistic Director, Ellie Pitkin, with assistance from Marcus Bazley. Zahra Mansouri is designing set/costume, with associate designer, Michelle Bristow. Andrew Crane is designing sound and lights.
Some original cast are returning, and some new faces are amongst us…

ALEX KHANYAGHMA – MAD HATTER/WHITE RABBIT/DOOR 3 /FLOWERS
STEVE WICKENDEN – THE QUEEN OF HEARTS/LIBRARIAN

Alice has lost her cat, but when her search leads her to the library, Alice discovers more than she could ever imagine. Fall down the rabbit hole with Alice as her world is turned upside down in this new adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale. Suitable for ages 4+ (and plenty of jokes for the grownups).
