Another re-interpretation of this story?

Granted, if anyone can make it work, it's them!

Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik, who are the authors behind the Tony Award-winning Spring Awakening, are currently workshopping a brand new show at London's National Theatre called Alice By Heart, which is inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!

Sater explains of the piece, which was commisioned by the group's Connections program:

"It's about how to leave childhood behind and the challenge and struggle in that."

He goes on to say that the show will add a heightened sense of urgency and danger to the material, and will employ ensemble storytelling to explore "themes of grief and loss."

With the script and score expected to be completed in July, there will be a workshop presentation in the UK in November. Through the Connections program, 30 youth theatres will then get the chance to stage the show in February of 2012, and representatives from the National will attend them, and the best one will get to perform their version at the National Theatre the following summer!

What a wonderful opportunity for so many! We have a feeling that with this much talent going into it all, the show will have no problem getting picked up for a professional run in London or on Broadway!

Best of luck to everyone involved!

We can't wait to see how it turns out!
