Alice in the Cuckoo’s Nest is at the Thurrock libraries


PROFESSIONAL theatre company Librarian Theatre return to Thurrock in February with ‘Alice in the Cuckoo’s Nest’, which re-imagines Lewis Carroll’s classic ‘Alice in Wonderland’ in the setting of a modern mental institution.

Although the show is family friendly, it’s a far cry from the innocent adventure portrayed by Walt Disney’s 1951 film version.

Tom Cuthbertson, Librarian Theatre Artistic Director and actor, says: “We’re not shying away from the darker sides of the subject matter, but nor will there be overly explicit content that would exclude younger audience members. Hopefully audiences of all ages will take something away from it, and it will help fuel important conversations about mental health.”

The show is aimed at ages 9 and over.

Tickets cost £10 each, or £5 concessionary, and can be booked from Stanford-le-Hope library or online at:
