The Lifespan of a Fact playwright Gordon Farrell's Alice Again, which examines the moral grey area between the author of Alice in Wonderland and his muse, premieres Off-Broadway at the Trinity Theatre beginning October 27. Directed by Chelsea LeSage, the production will continue through November 5.
This is the third iteration of the piece for Farrell, following a two-person version that played San Francisco in 1981, and an expanded Buffalo version in 1992. The play follows Rev. Charles Dodgson (pen name Lewis Carroll) on the day he reunites with the woman who inspired Alice in Wonderland, 16 years after he was forbidden from making contact with her. Based on his actual diary entries from that day, Dodgson is overwhelmed by his anxiety and imagines a world in which his own characters put him on trial for moral impropriety.
Alice Again features Joshua Koehn as Rev. Charles Dodgson/Lewis Carroll, Chelsea LeSage as Mrs. Badgeley/The Queen of Hearts, Adaline Gomez as Edith Wellington/Alice Pleasance Liddell, and Anuj Parikh as Rev. Robinson Duckworth/The King of Hearts.
The show is produced by Stag & Lion Theatre Company, and Nicholas Kennedy and Golden Grand Piano Productions.
