SYNOPSIS: Tonight is Anya's chance to shine. The curtain is about to rise on her adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, and in her final performance she's playing the starring role. But as she sits alone on the stage, things begin to change. And the world Anya used to escape to as a child part Carroll's world, part a world of her own creation suddenly seems all too real. As Alice or Anya tries to make sense of this new world, she must also come to grips with the truth about her own.

"Enjoyable Ensemble piece. We used this as a competition one-act and received high scores for the production. Runs longer than advertised. We had a 55 minute bare stage to bare stage time limit and just made it!"
By Laurie Tyson - Director and Fine Arts Department Chair - Luella High School
"Awaiting Wonderland is more than a retelling or rehashing of Alice in Wonderland. In fact, Stack's treatment of this widely recognizable story adds a poignancy that is missing from the original work. Not only did this play stretch my actors, they began looking at the play on a literary level without my asking them to. They had these discussions among themselves. They thought deeply about their characters in ways they had not for any other production of the season."
By Debb Adams - Director - WKMS
