Alice in Wonderland outdoor performance coming to Hackney

Lights of London productions are bringing Alice in Wonderland to Hackney from the 31st of May until June 4th at the Pelican House pop-up theatre.

Lights of London present a new adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic adventure in this fun family show for the summer half-term, in an outdoor rain-covered pop-up theatre, with fixed seating, and socially-distanced, household bubble bookings.

The show runs just over an hour with no interval and is most suitable for children aged 6 to 11 and their adults, but may be enjoyed by younger children too.  Refreshments, meals and snacks available from the Pelican House Café upstairs.

Alice is bored with her life and one day, she loves to daydream and one day a series of unexpected events lead her into the magical Wonderland ruled over by the Red Queen under the shadow of the mysterious Jabberwocky, a magical world full of new friends and frenemies who seem to need Alice’s help. Why is the Mad Hatter mad, and the White Rabbit always late? 

Was Humpty Dumpty pushed or did he fall and why are all the roses painted red?  She really wishes Tweedledum and Tweedledee would stop fighting and the Cheshire Cat would stop smiling. What with a smoking Caterpillar, time standing still, and a tea-drinking Dormouse, Alice doesn’t know whether she’s coming or going, but the big question is will she become Queen or go back to her “ordinary” life or is life in the upside-down world of Wonderland better?

The Pelican House pop-up theatre is a bespoke theatre space comprising a covered outdoor courtyard and socially distanced flexibly seated basement theatre both currently at 50%  including socially distanced seating, a one-way system, signage and includes bathroom facilities and refreshment at the popular local artisan Pelican House Cafe. 

Tickets start at £10 per adult and can be booked here.
