The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

OVERVIEW

 

"What does it mean to sit between this world and that at the drop of a hat?"

 

The Hatter and the Hare are stuck. They can't move on.

 

Trapped by self delusion and memory loss, they remain at 6 o'clock, forever drinking tea. The Hatter embraces it. The Hare rejects it. But who is to blame for this never-ending party? Take a trip down the proverbial rabbit hole with Brother Wolf's groundbreaking adaptation of one of the most beloved stories of all time. Fantastical and utterly bonkers, "The Mad Hatter's Tea Party" is a mind-bending new twist on Lewis Carroll's immortal classic. So grab your seat at The Hatter's table and get ready for the weirdest and wildest party this side of Wonderland!

PRESS QUOTES

"'The Mad Hatter's Tea Party', based on the book 'Alice in Wonderland' by Lewis Carroll, has been excellently adapted by James Hyland who not only produced and directed the play but incidentally plays the fun, crazed, eccentric Mad Hatter better than Johnny Depp any day of the week. Michael Shon plays the lovable March Hare with a gruff cockney accent and insane mannerisms that come together very well for his character. A Child Of The Jago have outdone themselves yet again on the fabulous costumes that sum up this production as entertaining, fun and full of laughs and a great play to go and see with the kids or simply on your own. I loved it."
