Wonderland takes us deep underground into the world of a coal mine where collapsing roofs and explosions are met with laughter. But when the politics of the day come crashing into the miner’s lives, the consequences are devastating, and a country is changed forever.
Wonderland received its world premiere at the Hampstead Theatre, London, 2014, in a production directed by Edward Hall. The play was broadcast live worldwide through the Guardian website, and was a finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize. Wonderland received its regional premiere in 2018 in a sold-out production by Adam Penford at the Nottingham Playhouse. That production was revived in 2019 at the Playhouse in a co-production with Northern Stage.
