The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

27 August 2024 to 7 September 2024 The White Bear Theatre

A man in a wide-brimmed hat and checkered attire holds a small, dark-colored animal, possibly a rat. He has disheveled, white hair and a weathered face, and appears to be in a theatrical or dramatic setting against a black background.

Brother Wolf's groundbreaking adaptation of one of the most beloved stories of all time.

BROTHER WOLF is proud to present the London Premiere of The Mad Hatter's Tea Party. Adapted, produced and directed by award-winning theatre practitioner, James Hyland , this one-of-a-kind show explores Lewis Carroll's fantastical world of Wonderland from the point of view of two of its most iconic characters: The Hatter and the March Hare. Visionary and utterly bonkers, 

The Mad Hatter's Tea Party offers a groundbreaking new twist on this perennial favourite by combining elements of absurdist tragicomedy with that of Carroll's nonsensical language and milieu. As part of this unique production, Brother Wolf has collaborated with A Child Of The Jago. They have designed and made the spectacular and original costumes for the show. 

What does it mean to sit between this world and that at the drop of a hat?" 

The Hatter and the Hare are stuck. They can't move on.

Trapped by self delusion and memory loss, they remain at 6 o'clock, forever drinking tea. The Hatter embraces it. The Hare rejects it. But who is to blame for this never-ending party? 

Take a trip down the proverbial rabbit hole with Brother Wolf's groundbreaking adaptation of one of the most beloved stories of all time. Grab your seat at The Hatter's table and get ready for the weirdest and wildest party this side of Wonderland!
