Oxford Music Theatre presents
Jane Bramwell and Michael Brand featuring Lewis Carroll’s characters and text
The real story of Charles Dodgson – the shy young mathematician at Christ Church College, Oxford who wrote the ‘Alice’ books as Lewis Carroll.
This ultimate Oxford musical uses his absurd ‘Alice’ characters, text and songs to reveal the tragic story of his love affair with Lorina Liddell – Alice’s mother in real life. Meanwhile, Lewis Carroll keeps an eye on proceedings.
Catchy tunes, mad humour, with a professional cast directed by David Kettle - brilliant international creative director.
