Reading of Elizabeth's Wonderland, Written by Marina Chan '13
Pratt Theater
Packer alumni, faculty and staff, and others read Elizabeth's Wonderland, a reimagining of Alice in Wonderland by alumna Marina Chan '13. Marina wrote Elizabeth's Wonderland, a playfully chaotic and fast-paced romp through the history of Western philosophy, as her college Senior playwriting thesis.

---------

Elizabeth's Wonderland reimagines Alice in Wonderland characters as various philosophers, who help Elizabeth (the universal student) make the transition from college to the "real world," as she reflects-in a dream/nightmare the night before graduation-on all her years of schooling, as well as our education system and society at large. Soon, she finds herself fighting alongside the philosophers in a battle with the duo of the centuries-the Queen and King of Hearts-whose "Cave" (based on Plato's Cave) is suspiciously too close for comfort.

Follow Elizabeth as she plunges into her unconscious - the absurd, illogical and fantastic world that is her Wonderland - as she takes the philosophies she's internalized the most and applies them to her own set of experiences, all to help her understand where she's come from, what she's been through and where she's going next.
