Badly sung songs, ill-fitting costumes and stilted delivery
Actor Richard Smithies looks ‘surprisingly like’ Lewis Carroll says the Fringe catalogue – unfortunately, this is where the positives end. The songs are badly sung to midi backing tracks, the costume ill-fitting, the delivery stilted and crucial episodes in the Alice saga are skipped over entirely. The sole infant attending the same performance as The List slept through the latter half – a wise move on her part.
