Alice and the World We Live In
October 22, 2019 @ 8:00 pm
October 15 – November 3
A beautiful love-story, written by one of Montreal’s finest playwrights.
ALICE: How long is forever?
WHITE RABBIT: Sometimes, just one second.
A woman stands frozen on a dangerous Italian mountain pass. Paralyzed, unable to move forward or turn back, she is suspended between multiple possibilities of what could have been and what is. Inspired by the topsy-turvy world Alice encounters in Wonderland when she falls down the rabbit hole, this moving allegory explores a woman’s struggle to push through the grief of losing the love of her life to a random act of terror. Echoing our collective fear of what lies ahead in these tumultuous and uncertain times, the play exalts our indefatigable resilience and endless capacity to love, once we find the courage to let go.
