Slay the jabberwocky

This year’s drama workshops groups have turned the power of their collective imaginations to explore and adapt Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

Alice follows the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole and is charged with the quest of slaying the Jabberwocky. She encounters curious, wonderful and nonsensical creatures, including the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter, who all implore her to “Slay the Jabberwocky!” The only problem? Everyone seems to have a different idea about what that is!

Our play explores the idea that everyone deals with ‘nonsensicals’ every day and each of us are charged with identifying and overcoming our own inner jabberwockies.
