2015 - 2016 Season

Alice in Wonderland

    September 30 >> November 8, 2015

    Alice’s story takes a sharp turn as she falls down the rabbit hole into the dark and mysterious Wonderland. Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili will combine their signature cinematic style with a script by recent Helen Hayes Award nominee Lloyd Rose, that promises to be a fresh take on Lewis Carroll’s fairy tale of the absurd. Synetic’s famously physical ensemble will bring new life to favorite characters such as the Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, and murderous Queen of Hearts, throughout Alice’s fantastical adventure! In honor of the 150th anniversary of the publishing of Alice in Wonderland, the Tsikurishvilis will give the story a gothic makeover for the Women’s Voices Theater Festival of Washington, D.C., this production will have dialogue.

    Alice will be played by Synetic Company Member Kathy Gordon who was born in Oxford, England and grew up around the places that inspired Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. The actress now brings her childhood familiarity with that world to the title character in Synetic’s new production! Read more…
