Emma Plotkin talks to Billie Aken-Tyers about Your Alice. An imaginative and intimate exploration of Alice, Wonderland, and the people behind the characters, Billie talks about the processing of developing a show seven years in the making.
“On the Golden Afternoon, Charles Dodgson (pen name Lewis Carroll) tells his child muse, Alice, her favourite story for the last time. Your Alice is a theatrical Victorian psychedelia that explores the complex and dynamic friendship between Mr. Dodgson and his ‘dreamchild’ muse Miss Alice Liddell, the inspiration behind Alice in Wonderland. As they sail down the Oxford river, his beloved characters weave us in and out of Wonderland and through his tortured relationship with 10-year-old Miss Liddell.”
