Alice in the rain
This evening we went to Wimpole Hall to watch an outdoor production of Alice - An Extraordinary Adventure - it combined both her adventures in wonderland and through the looking glass and was performed by "Heartbreak Productions" a touring outdoor theatre company. We got there about an hour before the start (you have to get there early to be able to get a good place to put your rug), during which the 4 actors in character as Alice and her family entertained the children in the audience, playing tennis and telling jokes etc.
I loved the play! The actors delivered their lines with enthusiasm, there was humour aimed at both children and adults and the story was well delivered. The White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen, Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and a baby that turns into a Peppa pig were all intertwined fabulously! It rained for the second half and the cast were drenched but kept going with vigour and even got some rain-fueled jokes in!
Well worth trying to catch if they are touring near to you!
