World Premiere #62: a Central Works Method Play

Someone must have recommended Joseph Kaye, for one morning, without having done anything to deserve it, he was summoned to the White House. He doesn’t know why. He doesn’t know who summoned him. He’s just an accountant at Herman Bros. Why him? Some very strange things happen as he waits anxiously in an empty room off the West Wing, waiting for his meeting with the “Red King,” a code name. But for who? There’s a woman named Alice. And someone called “The Rabbit.” There’s a “Mad Hatter” and a “Red Queen,” too. Something ghastly is going on in the White House. Someone’s being murdered. Joseph just wants to do his civic duty. But what exactly is that when you’re down the rabbit hole, and through the looking glass?

Lewis Carroll meets Franz Kafka in Wonderland.
