Quite simply superb! Witty, wonderful, Wonderland… the most promising company since the debut years of Rough Magic … Without any risk of overstatement, Wonderland Productions is a company that is really going places
The Irish Times
Welcome to Wonderland! At Wonderland we love to offer our audiences a thrilling night out. Through our portfolio of site-specific performances, classic comedies, new writing, dinner theatre, opera, and drama workshops, we are committed to engaging with our audiences, in a meaningful, spirited and more often than not, fun and surprising way. That is why audiences flock to our shows, and that is why our shows tour extensively, both in Ireland and internationally.
In 2010 we were resident at Mermaid Arts Centre Bray with whom we have developed a fruitful relationship, touring over twenty performances of our dinner theatre shows to restaurants and country houses throughout County Wicklow, producing our most fantastical spectacle to date, Gulliver’s Travels, and initiating our children’s drama workshops series with great success.
It is wonderful to think that since our foundation by writer/director Alice Coghlan in 2003, we have staged over five hundred successful performances, producing 121 performances in 2010 alone and employing over 55 theatre artists and practitioners in that same year.
In 2012, Wonderland moved from the theatre to the streets with its site-specific staging of Sylvia’s Quest, an innovative audio experience on headphones with two live actresses, and a self-guided audio drama tour of James Joyce’s Dubliners with Dublin One City One Book.
Currently in development for 2015 is an adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles, and the company is also planning to deliver more fun Children’s drama workshops throughout Ireland with our team of talented professionals.
