★★★★ After the warm response to Alice in Wonderland last year, it makes sense that Iris Theatre should tackle the arguably lesser known novel, Alice Through the Looking Glass for its 2014 season. Writer Daniel Winder has taken the Lewis Carroll’s convoluted narrative and adapts it to create a highly entertaining and epic journey…. Anne-Marie Plazza juxtaposes the veracity of the Red Queen with the humility of a humble Mosquito
Jamie Jackson’s inspired direction celebrates Carroll’s bizarre imagination and channels the eccentricities of British life – laced with ritual and religion – to bring the audience into the plot of this superlative promenade production.
Verdict: A tireless, talented ensemble bring Carroll’s lesser-known work to life with flair and invention (The Stage)
