Show Synopsis: Alice in Cyberland by Mark Landon Smith
"Alice in Cyberland brilliantly captures the nonsensical zaniness of Wonderland, transporting the fun to an online world. Procrastinating on her homework, Alice falls asleep as she plays solitaire on her computer and is awoken by a white rabbit. As the fuzzy bunny rushes off, the Cheshire Cat appears, informing Alice with a smile that she is now in Cyberland. Alice learns that she must find the dreaded Queen of Hearts in order to learn the password that will allow her to regain control of her computer. But everyone she meets along the way — a caterpillar, the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and a duchess — tells her that she doesn’t want to meet the Queen of Hearts! When Alice finally encounters the Queen, her majesty accuses the visitor of stealing her password and puts her on trial in a most ridiculous manner. " (Pioneer Drama)
