Laura Wickham as Alice in Alice through the Looking Glass

Alice through the Looking GlassLaura Wickham returns to play Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Alice through the Looking Glass, a new promenade show for all the family in the heart of Covent Garden.

Following last summer’s critical success with a promenade adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, Iris Theatre are returning to the gardens and grounds of St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden for a sixth year of  family-friendly theatre, and its sequel, Alice through the Looking Glass.

Laura Wickham is returning to once again play Alice and complete her adventures in a fantastical topsy-turvy world. Stepping through the surface of a magic mirror the audience join Alice as she journeys across a checkerboard world filled with fantastical creatures and talking flowers. Along the way, in a series of different locations around the church and its grounds, they will meet friends, old and new, including the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, the Lion and the Unicorn, and  Tweedledum and Tweedledee, before Alice has to face and battle the fearsome Jabberwock.
