The Caroll Myth (Schmucks Theatre Company)

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

A logician one moment and lacking any logic the next, Charles Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll, is forced to sit back and watch his imagination literally run wild, desperately endeavouring to revive the adventures of ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Faced with critique for his “nonsensical” writing and deprived of his eleven-year-old muse, it proves harder and harder for Dodgson to tame his imaginary characters or ignore the detrimental consequence they are having on his professional life. Superbly enacted by the entire cast, ‘The Caroll Myth’ provides an enchanting exploration of the fantastical mindset of one of literature’s most renowned authors. Enhanced by mystical music, riveting rhymes and the captivating lobster quadrille, this performance was nothing short of five stars.

Sweet Grassmarket, 4 – 28 Aug, 7.10pm (8.25pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp247.
