You might say that Oxford’s Creation Theatre and Northern Ireland’s Bigg Telly have had a good shut-down. While other were rushing to fling whatever they had in their archive on line, these two companies have together pioneered live interactive storytelling using Zoom that has provided rollicking family entertainment and made it feel as the audience is not an afterthought but essential. Just as we are in a physical space. The latest takes audiences down a rabbit hole for a digital version of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland relocated to a theme park. Zoe Seaton adapts and directs but one scene –The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party—has been written by Charlotte Keatley who wrote one of the most revived plays of the second half of the last century, My Mother Said I Never Should.
