Arithmetic, Arithmetoc:

Alice Liddell in the After-Time The idyll of childhood passes. Young girls grow up. Love is lost. Time cannot be halted. Lewis Carroll’s genius was his ability to use nonsense to reconstruct that very peculiar experience in childhood when the common sense categories of the adult world don’t make much sense at all. They, instead, appear porous, or capricious, or reversible. Carroll was himself a kind of perpetual child at heart, and like the Mad Hatter, constantly found himself quarreling with Time. Biographers have long debated whether Lewis Carroll wrote his Alice books as a Victorian ode to childhood innocence or as an expression of a repressed pedophile’s adoration. Carroll lamented in letters that “there are few things in the world so evanescent as a child’s love.” He also idealized the bodies of prepubescent girls as an aesthetic form, using photography as a way of arresting their youth. This is the same man—known to his familiars as mathematician Charles Dodgson—who imagined Alice grown-up “in the after-time,” telling other children about Wonderland in an attempt, “to keep, through all her riper years, the simple and loving heart of her childhood.” From this perspective, the madcap fantasia of Wonderland appears less a whimsical, literary invention than an extension of Carroll’s own tormented desires for ten-year-old Alice Liddell. It no longer signifies a dreamscape of infinite possibilities but an insidious labyrinth outside of time and society, designed to seal little girls in their infancy. Now we follow Alice once again underground, but this time she leads us down the rabbit hole of the unconscious. She navigates a schizo-world of dangerous proximities: affection and hostility, playful games and violent lessons, logics and erotics, tenderness and perversity, a young girl in the lap of a grown man. Determined to free herself from Dodgson’s broken clocks, Alice plumbs the depths of the changing self—no matter how very far down it goes, no matter how many wayward paths are travelled to get there. Her quizzical refrain has changed from “Who in the world am I?” to “Who am I without him, without his books, without this other imaginary Alice he created for me?” She must answer the frightful Jabberwocky.

—EVAN HILL, PRODUCTION DRAMATURG

OPPOSITE: ALICE, ILLUSTRATION BY LEWIS CARROLL, FROM ALICE’S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND, 1864. GIVEN TO ALICE LIDDELL, AGE 12, AS A PERSONAL CHRISTMAS GIFT FROM CARROLL.

Tom Waits (Music and Lyrics) According to the esteemed American critic Robert Hilburn, Waits is “clearly one of the most important figures of the modern pop era.” Since recording his first album, Closing Time, in 1973, his music has taken adventurous turns. His songs tend to explore the dark, underbelly of society as he gives his uniquely human voice to adventurers both romantic and mercenary, drifters, con artists and those forgotten characters on the fringe and in the fray. His stage collaborations include Frank’s Wild Years, The Black Rider: The Casting of the Magic Bullets, and Woyzeck. His album, Alice, featuring songs written for the play, was released to critical success in 2002. TomWaits.com


Robert Wilson (Concept) has

continuously articulated the force and originality of his vision through his signature use of light, his investigations into the structure of simple movement, and the classical rigor of his scenic and furniture design. His iconic work includes Death, Destruction, and Detroit; Einstein on the Beach, a collaboration with Philip Glass; and The Black Rider: The Casting of the Magic Bullets, an operatic collaboration with Tom Waits and William S. Burroughs. Wilson’s collaborations with artists, writers, and musicians continue to fascinate audiences worldwide. RobertWilson.com

The Benjamin Mordecai III Production Fund, established by

a graduate of the School, honors the memory of the Tony Award-winning

producer who served as Associate Dean and Chair of the Theater Management Department at Yale School of Drama from 1993 until his death in 2005. During his tenure as Yale Rep’s Managing Director alongside Dean/Artistic Director Lloyd Richards, 1982–1993, he developed a model of professional producing that changed the course of new play development in the American theatre. His 25 Broadway credits included Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, as well as work by Anna Deavere Smith, Athol Fugard, David Henry Hwang, Terrence McNally, Robert Schenkkan, and perhaps most significantly August Wilson, with whom he collaborated on each of the ten plays in the epic 20th Century Cycle.
