Adventures In Wonderland at The Vaults

Adventures In Wonderland The Vaults 20th May 2017 3 Stars Book Tickets What has happened to this show?  Only a month ago, it was firing on all cylinders, generating a wonderful buzz in the atmospherically redesigned venue, attracting droves of enthusiastic patrons, many dressed up to look the part, and all ready to throw themselves into the mysterious and fascinating world generated by an army of designers and technicians in a sprawling complex of spaces beneath Waterloo Railway Station.  The cast were animated, intensely driven to tell their extraordinary tale of exploration both physical and psychical.  The audience entered into this ready to open their hearts and minds to a revelatory rediscovery of Lewis Carroll’s stories, ‘Alice In Wonderland’ and ‘Alice Through The Looking-Glass’.

REVIEW: The Litterati, The Vaults ✭✭✭

The Litterati at The Vaults

The Litterati is an intriguing deconstruction of life on the margins of society, seen through the eyes of its sheltered protagonist. The play occasionally suffers from melodrama, and explaining, rather than demonstrating key elements of the narrative. Nevertheless, this is compensated by otherwise perceptive dialogue and strong performances. It is certainly worth a watch.
