Faithful to the madness and the lively humour of the original piece, this retelling of Lewis Caroll’s classic tale has a unique twist: the setting is no longer a garden but a library full of pop-up books! Each book is a discovery, a door to the next adventure. Alice in Wonderland is a gateway to the imagination… Will you follow the white rabbit?

“Revisiting the nonsensical brilliance of Carroll's upside-down Wonderland world never gets old, especially when the job is placed in such apt hands. Patrice Charbonneau-Brunelle's inventive, compact library-room set with its shifting parts is fabulous. (...) There are puns and puns and more puns and sight gags and silliness - all tied up in a beautiful take on brilliant children's literature.” -The Montreal Gazette
