A UK premiere by Conn Artists, don’t miss the opportunity to experience the brand new writing season at Middlesbrough Theatre this Autumn.
Reclusive writer and photographer Charles Dodgson (also known as “Lewis Carroll”) invites celebrity author Charles Dickens to his Oxford home to pose for a portrait. Dickens is so intrigued by the whimsical Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland that he accepts.
What ensues is a baring of two creative souls, the one private and fastidious, the other boisterous and irreverent. As Dodgson struggles to capture a “perfect likeness” of Dickens, Dickens craftily pries into Dodgson’s personal life to get a handle on one of the most curious men he has ever met.
