Anne Hathaway has not heard a word from her young husband William Shakespeare since he left Stratford. She doesn't know if he is writing all the great plays and poems he always said that he would, or if he has fallen victim to the plague, the pox or the dreaded Vagabond Act of 1597.

A unique hunt, where the audience decide whether to be wandering poets, seeking words to create a master work, or the Night Watch, trying to track down the poetic vagabonds.

Commissioned by the Barbican Centre and Museum of London, and performed on the covered walkways joining the two together.

The White Rabbit, Dormouse, Mad Hatter and Alice group together in various poses, outside of a stately home.


A three month residency for the National Trust property Antony House in Torpoint, which was a location for Tim Burton's version of Alice In Wonderland. The audience helped Alice gather together The Dormouse, The Mad Hatter and The White Rabbit, to help put on a quite frabjous party for the Red Queen's birthday. Or else it would have cost them very dearly!

“This new combination of party and show is pure delight.”
