Following two sold-out runs with their previous Edinburgh Fringe Festival shows, Vino Veritas (2023) and Ideation (2022), EUTCo are excited to bring to life a retelling of the classic stories, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass. Alice breathes fresh life into a much-loved story about rabbit holes, pocket watches and talking caterpillars.
Following Alice after the death of her older brother, this thrilling adaptation takes audiences on a breath-taking journey to a childhood once forgotten and the darkness that lurks at the very edge of it. The White Rabbit is late for the Duchess. The Cheshire Cat won’t stop grinning. And the Hatter is, well mad. In the middle of it all is Alice, a young girl with a vivid imagination and a family life that’s less than perfect.
EUTCo are the longest-running theatre company on the University of Exeter campus. They produce a range of published plays throughout the year, ranging from their annual production at the Northcott to their annual touring show, when members direct, perform, and produce a show for the Edinburgh Fringe.
