Synopsis

In the aftermath of a Halloween party gone horribly wrong, three college students reveal their memories of that mysterious night. In a dark homage to the classic children’s story Alice in Wonderland, the audience must determine what is reality and what is fantasy as Cara, Nate, and Jamie tumble down the rabbit hole of memory. For as the party breaks up and the evidence of the event disappears, their memories are all that remain. This play is the smile left behind by the Cheshire Cat as he disappears into thin air.
