The Carroll Myth
Schmucks Theatre, 2010
I took the part of The Cheshire Cat in this highly physical investigation of Lewis Carroll as he wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
Why is a raven like a writing desk? Though there may be no logical answer to Lewis Carroll’s eternal riddle, logic became redundant in this whimsical, arresting, and fascinating play. Stunningly intermingling the real life of Charles Dodgson with the imaginary world in Lewis Carroll’s mind, The Carroll Myth was an astonishing piece of theatre in every way. Accompanied by exquisite original music and visually captivating, this exploration of the dichotomy between logic and fantasy would convert any mathematician to the dark side of the irrational. Written by Nathan Shreeve of Schmucks Theatre, The Carroll Myth examines the life of mathematician Charles Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll) as he writes Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass (And What Alice Found There).
