Item Type: Performance
Creators: Furse, Anna F. D.
Abstract or Description:

Commissioned by Theatre Centre, this monodrama explores eating disorders and body image via a monologue in which Alice, a 15-year-old from the 19th century, travels in time as well as through her own body. As Alice shape-shifts through 100 years of culture, she becomes disordered by the pressures on a young girls' psyche. The original production toured the UK and to Malaysia and the Philippines for the British Council. A US production is in repertory at the New Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. It is currently being translated into Hebrew with a view to production in Israel.

Contributors: Hutt, Rosamunde (Director); Langston-Jones, Suzanne (Designer) and Miller, Graeme (Composer)
