OU Playwriting Alum Jeremy Sony has a new play called “The Last Queen of Wonderland” at Street Theater In Nashville, playing through this weekend! It was written for their youth program called ClassAct Dramatics and is his third collaboration with them!
Here’s a synopsis of the piece: A young woman discovers an impossible family secret…She travels to Wonderland, books in tow as her guide, in search of her sister who disappeared years ago. There, she meets a teenage boy named Charlie who’s been imprisoned by the Queen of Hearts. Now, Lacie must rescue Charlie and her sister, and find a way for all of them to escape through the looking glass back to where they belong. Otherwise, Charlie may never grow up to write the books, and without the clues they hold, Lacie and her sister may get trapped in Wonderland forever.
Check out some awesome production photos of the show and check the show out if you’re in the Nashville area!
October 16-24, shows on Fridays at 7pm and Saturdays at 2pm & 7pm.
