Kenworth, James ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-2700-2853 (2019) Alice in Canning Town an exclusively East-End reimagining of a fantasy classic. Playdead Press, Portsmouth. ISBN 9781910067826. [Book]

Abstract

This is Alice in Wonderland as you’ve never seen before. All the favorite characters are still there, but in new, modern guises. A cockney rabbit, a rave-mad Mad Hatter, a hookah-smoking ex-Bollywood actor, Tweedledee and Tweedledum as hipsters, and a would-be grime artist called MC Turtle. From Cockney to Bangra, from the Krays to Stormzy, Alice in Canning Town was performed site-responsively at Canning Town’s inclusive adventure playground, Arc in the Park, in the summer of 2019 and is a celebration of not only one of the best loved fantasies of all time, but a kaleidoscopic and action-packed journey through an East End that survived Hitler’s blitz and reinvented itself as a leading light in multicultural Britain.
