Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" has been enjoyed with by children and adults alike for almost 150 years. So, it is no wonder that actor/clown/playwrights Sara Moore ("Show Ho") and Michael Phillis' ("Dolls," "D*Face," "Wish You Were Here") version of the story in their play entitled "Wunderworld" currently in a run until August 11 at The Creativity Theater in San Francisco captivates both adults and kids.

Their concept present Alice as an 80-year old woman who has been relegated to spending the rest of her days in a convalescent home alongside her sister with little to stimulate her life. It is not until a musical invitation from inside an old traveler's chest in the sisters' room beckons Alice to come open it does Alice's life once again explore the fantasy at the bottom of the Rabbit Hole, now called Wunderworld.
