This is a play for one actress who plays two characters, a White Rabbit and a girl. The White Rabbit is a puppet/stuffed animal which is voiced and manipulated by the girl. The play begins with the White Rabbit, a puppet manipulated by the girl, is being interviewed about his relationship with Alice, as in the sort of documentary in which only in interviewee is seen and heard. The White Rabbit tries to understand why Alice would follow him down the rabbit hole, comments on her substance abuse problems, and describes her as the sort of girl who would burn her bridges and then run back and forth across them as they burned. Then the White Rabbit turns to the Girl, who's been operating him and doing his voice, and ask her if she's Alice. And that's when things start getting curiouser and curiouser. Spooky, funny, surreal.
