Alice in Under-land

Just a quicky - because I've got a strange aversion to long blog posts at the moment :-) ,as a colleague pointed me in the direction of this today:

"Lewis Carroll's Alice has been transported to contemporary London. She lives in a run down estate with a mother who isn't coping and, rather than disappearing down a hole by the riverbank, this Alice runs away to the Underground where she meets an equally bizarre collection of characters.The modern day transformation works well and the energetic music quickly creates all the strange people she meets: drug addicts, gospel singing enthusiasts, isolated commuters, muggers and country music singing prostitutes with a heart of gold. The cast rapidly change from character to character, apart from Emma Cambridge who movingly creates the confused and lonely Alice who welcomes all these strange people into her life."

Yes, it's a musical based on the Tube! It's at the Queen's theatre, Hornchurch (Nearest Tube, er.. Hornchurch) but is only on for a couple of more days! See the
BBC Essex website for complete details.
