Welcome to wonder.land, where you can be exactly who you want to be. Aly, 12, loves this extraordinary virtual world. Bullied at school and unhappy at home, wonder.land lets her escape from her parents, from teachers, from herself. Online, Aly becomes Alice: brave, beautiful and in control. But some of the people she meets - the weird Dum and Dee, the creepy Cheshire Cat, the terrifying Red Queen - seem strangely familiar. As hard as Aly tries to keep them apart, real life and wonder.land begin to collide in ever more curious and dangerous ways.Performers Carly Bawden (Alice/Aly), Sam Archer (Dum), Lois Chimimba (Aly), Ivan De Freitas (Dodo), Anna Francolini (Ms Manxome), Hal Fowler (Cheshire Cat/Caperpillar)), Paul Hilton (Matt), Daisy Maywood (Humpty), Enyi Okoronkwo (Luke Laprel), Golda Rosheuvel (Bianca), Cydney Uffindell-Phillips (Mock Turtle), Whitney White (Dinah), Leon Cooke (Dee), Nadine Cox (WPC Rook), Adrian Grove (Mr King), Joshua Lacey (White Rabbit), Lisa Ritchie (Ensemble/Swing), Ed Wade (Mouse/Kieran), Simon Anthony (Ensemble/Swing), Stephanie Rojas (Mary Ann), Dylan Mason (Ensemble/Swing), Abigail Rose (Kitty).
