Wonderland: in development

Make the world more wonderful with Alice!


Choose a door and discover what's beyond...perhaps you'll be dancing with turtles or investigating the suspicious theft of the best Royal Jam Tarts!


Wonderland is our new exciting multi-sensory, interactive and intergenerational show for 2019!


It will feature original music, playful characters, plenty of opportunities to join in to create your own Wonderland, plus the chance to actually experience the smells and even the tastes of Wonderland!

We are extremely grateful to for our current funders' support, but touring theatre, especially to places where people can't pay a lot for ticket prices, needs the generosity of people who have a few spare pounds and would like to help others experience theatre. If this is you, or you like the idea of supporting the development of new theatre that is both family and dementia-friendly, then you can support this production by making a donation via our Localgiving page. Thank you for your generosity!

Wonderland is being developed for an intergenerational audience where some of the members of the audience may be are living with dementia. We are currently researching best practice for arts facilitation for those living with dementia, and we will be working with a dementia specialist mentor.


The show will be devised to work in the context of a care-home, community centre or school setting as well as for family festivals and events, as well as conventional theatre spaces. The show will work in both indoor and outdoor locations.


The show was made at Creative Workspace in March 2019, and it's first tour , a mixture of community and theatre venues, runs from April to August 2019. Full details below.


Wonderland is kindly supported by Arts Council England, Bristol Ageing Better, Quartet Community Foundation, Wells Theatre Festival, That Creative Thingy Wotsit CIC and BID Clifton Village.
