Work Of Genius Ltd

Behind brilliant minds often lie hidden troubles, alienation and inability to accept reality the way it is. In a new play by Gyles Brandreth we are invited into the world of Lewis Carroll, whose books have played a part in children’s lives for over a century. In this true story, Michael Maloney brings Carroll alive, capturing the magic of his imagination whilst also inviting us to view the darker side of a perturbed man whose life was a constant struggle against loneliness. Although it is essentially a musical, in places this seems to be a mere joyful cover up of the dark underlying meaning of the play.
