We’re thrilled that a new adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland will play in the open air in Manchester this summer.
Prepare for Manchester to become Madchester.
Directed by HOME’s newly appointed Creative Associate Director Lekan Lawal, the production has been developed in association with Stockroom Productions.
A joyful show for the whole family, take the opportunity to escape the restrictions of the last year by following Alice down the rabbit hole. Featuring original songs alongside classic anthems, this new version of Carroll’s fantastical tale follows Alice and her little brother Lewis as they tumble into a magical and chaotic new world. Prepare for Manchester to become Madchester.
Alice in Wonderland will play at Homeground, a fantastic temporary outdoor venue.
Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland will play at Homeground, a fantastic temporary outdoor venue. Constructed in a space three times the size of Albert Square, the new venue will host theatre, food and drink, music, cabaret and comedy. With a Cabinet of Curiosities-themed design, the space already seems perfect to play host to Carroll’s weird and wonderful story.
Scheduled to open this May, Homeground will have two stages alongside pop-up food and drink vendors – providing a brilliant summer destination for those looking for Covid-safe cultural fun as lockdown eases.
Located near HOME’s existing site on First Street, Homeground is scheduled to open on Friday 28 May 2021. The first production at the venue will be Filter Theatre’s riotous take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
