16th, 17th & 18th June 7.30pm £10
Wonder in Aliceland is a semi autobiographical piece about two close female friends, navigating life through their late 20s to early 40s. It deals with relationships, both romantic and plutonic. At times a dark comedic view on the perils of dating in the modern world. It touches upon the metoo movement as the friends discuss the banalities of life and dating through to boundaries of consensual sex and rape with the ease of friends who are close. Its a look into their lives and views from a women’s’ perspective post #MeToo. Within the journeys of these two women are the realities of dating; how dating changes with age; the real conundrums facing women dating online; the dangers and realities of going on dates; pregnancy and miscarriage but all discussed with humour and warmth. It calls attention to the prejudices towards women in today’s society, and shines a light on an often-ignored age in a woman’s life.
★★★★★ “Outstanding and shows Alice Henley’s writing at its best.” London Pub Theatres Magazine
★★★★ “Ultimately a powerful, heart-wrenching, and sensitive piece performed by two first-rate actors, with wonderfully nuanced direction. It calls attention to the prejudices towards women in today’s society, and shines a light on an often-ignored age in a woman’s life. Highly recommended, and I certainly suggest keeping an eye out for Alice Henley’s next work.” LondonTheatre1
