This new theatrical work from Vanishing Point makes a tremendous impression… A meditation on pornography, exploitation and sexual aggression and shame dressed in the skin of a dream-like allusion to Alice in Wonderland…Matthew Lenton builds the tension with a masterful, slow moving grace…

Wonderland begins with the mystery of a young woman, leaving home and embarking on a dangerous journey.

In another moment down went Alice, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again              
         

Meanwhile, a couple go about the routine of their lives, surrounded by a dark and mysterious world in which anything is possible and anything goes.

Wonderland examines the allure of the erotic and the invasion of pornography into modern popular culture. It is a mystery about a door that - once opened - is almost impossible to close, a story about curiosity, power and the moment fiction and make-believe blur into reality.

 That door leads to a dark place,
A dark and exciting place
But once you open it
Once you enter that place
You can’t come back
Things will not be the same anymore.
 
Wonderland is a dark, mysterious and magical new show from leading Scottish company Vanishing Point, whose previous work includes Interiors, Saturday Night, The Beggar’s Opera and Subway.
 
A co-production with Fondazione Campania dei Festival - Napoli teatro Festival Italia and Tramway. In association with Eden Court.
