Alice Dreaming

• Large cast for teenagers.

• 29 characters (possible doubling)

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.
