From playwright Craig Lucas (The Light in the Piazza, Prelude to a Kiss) comes this darkly comic tale of a modern-day Alice in a perilous winter wonderland.

Paula Plum will be in the cast until the December 6 matinee. Maureen Keiller will step in to perform her roles for the final week of the run, from Tuesday 12/8 through Saturday 12/12.
