A dark look at the modern world, a place where fame, celebrities and pornography are the ultimate goal, loosely based on themes explored in Alice in Wonderland. From acclaimed Scottish theatre company Vanishing Point, with Matthew Lenton directing.
Created by Vanishing Point from Scotland, Wonderland, a darkly subversive take on the themes of Alice in Wonderland, examines the attraction of fame and stardom, the desire for something more, the allure of the erotic and the invasion of pornography into modern popular culture. Director Matthew Lenton offers a dreamlike, edgy and intensely physical experience. Please note, this performance contains adult themes. Supported through the Scottish Government's Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund.
