Curiouser and curiouser…don’t you agree?
A theatrical experience with a difference. Dining with Alice served up an enchanting Victorian feast in the grounds of a manor house.
Over eight nights, guests were served a four-course meal outdoors by a team of turban-wearing volunteers. Imaginatively-named dishes including ‘Mock Turtle Soup’ and ‘The Pie of Hearts’ were on the menu, specially created by Bompas & Parr in association with students from City College Norwich.
Transported into Lewis Caroll’s imaginary world, this immersive piece of theatre brought unexpected moments from well-loved characters: Alice running through the trees; the screaming Queen of Hearts; the anxious White Rabbit. The performance culminated at nightfall with a musical finale under the stars. An epic production in a beautiful setting, Dining With Alice turned audiences into honoured guests and breathed new life into a literary classic.
Part of the Sky Arts Artichoke Season. Produced in collaboration with Norfolk & Norwich Festival.
