Written by J.F. Cornes and Tomas Mason, The Looking Glass is the new, interactive, family-friendly show by Carnival of Eternal Light, inspired by the well-known and well-loved works of Lewis Carroll – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
Carnival of Eternal Light is a multi-arts theatre production company which utilises the skills of many different performers from across the vast myriad of performance genres, including theatre, circus and dance to create worlds of vibrant magic, fantasy and entertainment which the whole family can enjoy.
After a successful opening run at the King’s Arms Theatre in May followed by well-received performances at both the Liverpool Fringe and Slade Hall Retrospective Festivals, The Looking Glass is now heading out this October to Liverpool and Salford and a return run at Frederiks Bar in Liverpool.
Utilising the skills of actors, dancers and circus performers Carnival of Eternal Light will use Frederiks’ unique performance space for their quirky retelling of Wonderland’s topsy-turvy fairytale.
The audience will experience the classic scenes, characters and concepts from Carroll’s work as well as entirely new and original scenes, characters and concepts created by the production team that will intermingle to create a vivid journey through Wonderland in a way which is familiar and yet startlingly new. As the audience takes on Alice’s role as the foreign presence to Wonderland’s larger than life characters, The Queen of Hearts hunts furiously for her missing tarts.
