Mad Tea Party, The

FARCE. Audiences will love this witty, modern sequel to the Mad Hatter’s tea party in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865). Like the infamous Alice, Allie follows the White Rabbit down a rabbit hole into Wonderland and encounters the Mad Hatter and March Hare at their never-ending 6 o’clock tea party with their only guest, the sleepy Dormouse. The Mad Hatter and March Hare are annoyed by Allie and consider her a rabbit stalker and party crasher. However, after chit-chatting for several hundred years about the weather and the Mad Hatter’s mother, the hosts are excited by Allie’s arrival and bombard her with riddles, puns, poems, and wordplay. They have fun insulting Allie by making fun of her clothes and hair and forcing her to play games like “The Funny Hat” and “What Am I Looking At?” In the end, the hosts deem Alice smarter and a better conversationalist than Allie. Unable to escape, Allie must learn from the Dormouse how to cope with their endless chatter and pointless conversations.
