"To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, critically-acclaimed theatre company Les Enfants Terribles (The Vaudevillains; The Trench) will bring Wonderland to the capital with Alice’s Adventures Underground, in an adaptation by Oliver Lansley and Anthony Spargo. Producer Emma Brünjes (Meow Meow: Wonderground; Secret Cinema: Miller’s Crossing) joins the team to bring this ambitious theatrical experience to life on a grand scale. Leading agency Creature of London are also on board as creative collaborators. 

Open for a limited season from early April 2015 and staged in the atmospheric Vaults underneath Waterloo station, Alice’s Adventures Underground will create Wonderland as a fully formed world that blends storytelling, live music, puppetry, circus and spectacle. Invited down the rabbit hole in intimate groups of 52 (based on a deck of cards), each audience member will be presented with a choice of EAT ME or DRINK ME, which will affect the way their show will unfold."

"Oliver Lansley, Founder and Artistic Director of Les Enfants Terribles, says: “What stands out to me when reading Alice is the desire to experience Wonderland for yourself – this is what our show offers. This Wonderland will deliver a truly otherworldly adventure that is unique to every audience member, combining complete sensory immersion with the visual storytelling and stage-craft that remain at the heart of Les Enfants Terribles.”

"Producer Emma Brünjes says: “Les Enfants Terribles are the perfect company to bring Wonderland to life. We are inspired by the current trends in immersive theatre, but want to take this opportunity to explore new ways to blend immersion with storytelling. Fusing a strong narrative with a rich, detailed world will ensure our audience truly experience Alice’s journey for themselves.”
