Product details

'Dining with Alice was one of the earliest instances of immersive (where spectators are part of the action), site-specific (the place is part of the subject) theatre. It was a landmark.' First performed in 1999 at the Salisbury Festival, the piece was conceived and directed by Hilary Westlake and staged in the Victorian pleasure gardens of Salisbury as part of the Salisbury Festival, commissioned by the then festival director Helen Marriage. In 2011 the work was part of the Norfolk and Norwich festival, produced by Artichoke, transplanted to the beautiful grounds of a 15th-century moated manor house. 'Lewis Carroll's characters unleashed from Alice's dream, wandering through a landscape accompanied by an audience whose walk is punctuated by the courses of a meal.' (Quotations from Susannah Clapp - Observer Newspaper U.K. 15 May 2011).
