Some years ago I devised and produced a 'Mystery House' for a writers festival in Canada. This was a one minute theatre experience for one audience member at a time and was meant to inspire the visitors to create a story of their own. Finding Alice had the same intent and has something in common with the Problem Pictures the group have been developing for the Empty Galleries. This is a kind of Problem Play. The plot therefor needed to be somewhat ambiguous to provoke the audience into making sense of it through their own imagination and the skills most people have inherited through hearing, seeing and telling stories.
The audience purchased a ticket to Wonderland at a discount price on condition they deliver a letter to 'Whom it may concern" . They were given no further clues but were told they would simply know, but to very caucus about not giving it to the wrong person. They were conducted into a railway carriage by the Guard. The carriage was constructed inside a tent with suitcases suspended from the ceiling. Sitting in the carriage was the Man in paper suit from Alice through the Looking glass, other characters came and went through the brief five minute journey. Audience members were looking for clues as to who to give the letter to. Then... well to avoid spoilers, I won't go on. Maybe we will resurrect it some day soon.
