Alice brings her looking glass to the Castle

Alice22-1Alice will be bringing her looking glass to Blarney Castle on Friday the 22nd of August at 5.30pm. The story ‘Through the Looking Glass’ is a real family favourite, following Alice’s fantastical adventures in the strange world she enters through the mirror above her drawing-room fireplace. What she finds there is a world laid out in the form of a giant chess board and before long Alice finds herself entering the game as a white pawn. The story follows her travels across the board until she is crowned queen at the eighth square and along the way she encounters some of Carroll’s most memorable and enduring characters, among them Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Walrus and the Carpenter, The Lion and the Unicorn, and the Jabberwock. The piece is also filled with many fine nonsense poems and songs which are still quoted today. This adaptation by Michael Whitmore, faithfully charts the fabulous, wonderful and rather perplexing world created by the great Lewis Carroll and retaining the humour and quirkiness we’ve all come to hold dear in these classic tale, this truly a show for all the family. Tickets (priced as below) can be purchased at Blarney Castle ticket office or over the phone on 021 4385252. Adult €12, Senior/Student €10, Children €5, Family €30
