Alice in Wonderland is a play of playful nonsense. An extravagant story about Alice, a clever ten-year-old girl, who deliberately and without hesitation jumps down the rabbit hole and enters a world of wonders the likes of which exist only in dreams and in Wonderland. Alice encounters many odd and magical things – Curiouser and curiouser, as she repeatedly cries out. Rabbits in livery, grinning cats, queens that are overly fond of decapitation, along with other
animals and fantastical beings which we are already familiar with here in our Normalland – although in Wonderland, their relations with each other are no less than odd and they engage in eccentric quandaries, in nonsense, giving rise to thoughts on serious mathematical, logical, philosophical and physical questions. Extravagance abounds, and normality is an exception.
The theatrical Alice is just like the children of today. Disobedient, daring, and none too humble; when she's searching for something, she isn't content with anything; and curious to the point of cheekiness. And yet with such a good and gentle heart, she never ignores 'the other'. She cares about everything, isn't indifferent about anything, and takes nothing for granted. So she travels across Wonderland, searching, finding, doubting. Exploring, and pressing on. With every new
insight, she grows, on the outside just as on the inside. And in the nonsense that she encounters in Wonderland, she seeks meaning for all of us in our human and natural world.
