When Alice meets Eve:
A Psychodrama in the Gardens of the Known and Unknown
603 VANDERBILT AVENUE
Leanne Domash, Ph.D. and Evelyn Rappoport, Psy.D.
Director: Jarred Sharar, M.A.
This two person dark comedy features the biblical Eve of the Garden of Eden and Alice Liddell who, at age ten, was the inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. This play within a play is about being seen and not seen, about the known and the unknown and about trauma, dissociation and healing.
The year is 1875, and Alice is now 23 years old. She is haunted by the celebrity of the fictional Alice and has remained fixated at a younger age, when she was traumatized by Carroll's sexually inappropriate behavior. Eve has time-travelled to meet and help Alice, who has become quite isolated and withdrawn. In the process, Eve herself undergoes a surprising transformative experience.
Together Alice and Eve travel back down to nonsensical, fantastical, dream-like Wonderland, where players speak in rhyme with confusions of tongues. Falling into this “ dreamscape”, Alice and Eve play on the edges of reality as they meet many familiar characters such as the Red Queen, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and the Serpent.
After the performance, the writers and director will engage the audience in discussion on trauma, healing and resiliency.
