Alice is a typical teenage girl constantly who is being bombarded by the expectations of others. She escapes into the world of her imagination. She disappears down a drain, lands in the ocean and is rescued by an Albatross who takes her on a journey of self discovery that includes a rainforest, the Gold Coast, a child care centre, a virtual world, federal parliament and a court case. Alice’s journey opens her eyes to the world around her.

Students were challenged by the political material and the fact they had to perform multiple roles with complex voices and characterization
A fantastic vehicle for everyone. Adored the beach stuff. Such great heart.
