Wonderland

Theatre for all.

Creativity for the community.

Wonderland

Join us as we go on an adventure to Wonderland!


Choose a door and discover what's beyond. Perhaps you'll be dancing with turtles or investigating the suspicious theft of the Royal Jam Tarts!


Wonderland is a multi-sensory, interactive and intergenerational show, made in 2019.


Featuring original music, playful characters, plenty of opportunities to join in and the chance to experience the smells and even the tastes of Wonderland!


Wonderland is for an intergenerational audience where some of the members of the audience may be living with dementia, and has been designed to be toured to care homes and community settings.

The show was made at Creative Workspace in March 2019, and toured a mixture of community and theatre venues from April to July 2019. It was then re-developed in September 2019 with kind support from Tobacco Factory Theatres in Bristol, and toured in October 2019 to Newcastle-under-Lyme where it was featured in the New Vic Theatre's Live Age Festival 2019, and to Cote Lane Retirement Village in Bristol as part of Age UK Bristol's Celebrating Age Festival. Another tour is planned for the spring of 2020.


Wonderland was kindly supported by Arts Council England, Bristol Ageing Better, Quartet Community Foundation, Wells Theatre Festival, Tobacco Factory Theatres, Bristol Old Vic, Bristol Age UK, That Creative Thingy Wotsit CIC and BID Clifton Village.


Dementia-sensitive theatre seminars and workshops


We led a seminar as part of Dementia Action Week in Bristol and a workshop in the New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-under-Lyme, about the process of making Wonderland to be dementia-sensitive. If you are interested in finding out more about this, please contact bravebolddrama@gmail.com.
