The Story: For her tenth birthday, Alice is given a very special gift: her first mobile. Thrilled by the surprise, she ignores everything around her and goes into the mobile’s games app. Until a White Rabbit snatches it away from her and she chases after him trying to get it back. During their trip through Wonderland, Alice realizes that she cannot escape from the real world by immersing herself in her mobile; thus she discovers the value of imagination and reading and learns to use technology with certain conditions. The play is set in our times, where children live together every day with technology. It is designed for all audiences over 6.
