Crystal City (Arlington, VA) - Synetic Theater will open their 2015/16 Season with Alice in Wonderland, a new adaptation penned by Lloyd Rose for the Women’s Voices Theatre Festival of Washington, DC. The production will be directed and choreographed by visionary Synetic co-founders Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili, respectively.
“Synetic’s masterful storytelling will transform Crystal City into Wonderland," said Crystal City BID President/CEO Angela Fox. “We are excited to see this new production play out on the Crystal City stage and kickoff the Synetic season.”
Alice’s story takes a sharp turn as she falls down the rabbit hole into the dark and mysterious Wonderland. The Tsikurishvilis will combine their signature cinematic style with a script by recent Helen Hayes Award nominee Lloyd Rose (The Island of Dr. Moreau), that promises to be a fresh take on Lewis Carroll’s fairy tale of the absurd. Synetic’s famously physical ensemble will bring new life to favorite characters such as the Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, and murderous Queen of Hearts, throughout Alice’s fantastical adventure. This production is rated 13+ for moments that younger children may find frightening.
