Alice Through the Wormhole

February 2015

A wild, original musical take on Alice through the Caltech universe.

Alice is bored.

She's a new grad genius in spintronics and marionetting on a tour of Tellkech, until WB, a manic Phd candidate, drags her down a wormhole to the underbelly of the campus. Logic and reality lose ground as she gets caught in the battle between the Queen of Funding and the Dark Prince of Future Science.

Dead scientists, time loops, the Cheshire Chimp and Tweedle Y & Z...

Will she ever get out, or will she decide to stay?
