On the Golden Afternoon, Charles Dodgson (pen name Lewis Carroll) tells his child muse, Alice, her favourite story for the last time. Your Alice is a theatrical Victorian psychedelia that explores the complex and dynamic friendship between Mr. Dodgson and his ‘dreamchild’ muse Miss Alice Liddell, the inspiration behind Alice in Wonderland. As they sail down the Oxford river, his beloved characters weave us in and out of Wonderland and through his tortured relationship with 10-year-old Miss Liddell.

Your Alice

​​"This is a truly mesmerizing piece of drama, in which not a moment of stage time is wasted. Every instant and every line glitters." - EdFringe Review

In a small town in the North East of England, Steph’s Dad has just died, and it’s up to her best friends Ant and Harry to pull her through the worst year of her life. In a year of transition, three friends discover who they are, how to grieve and that growing up is realizing that no one knows how to be a grown up… all through the medium of a good old-fashioned Pub Quiz.

“Aken-Tyers captures, with painful and compelling accuracy, the weird and wonderful feeling of returning home, even if that home is a Geordie pub like none you’ve ever seen.”

In its many forms, love manifests in us all in the face of danger. Beginnings, endings or somewhere in between, We Carry on explores its many faces through the lens of the Second World War.
