On a glorious summer’s afternoon, young ALICE happens upon a smartly dressed rabbit looking at his watch and muttering ‘I’m too late!’ This being an unexpected occurrence, she follows him down a nearby rabbit hole and falls into Wonderland where she meets many strange and curious creatures. Here, ALICE tries to help the WHITE QUEEN but finds her too confusing.
Alice in Wonderland - Duologue
ALICE: There goes somebody’s shawl. (ALICE catches a flying white shawl in mid-air. Next moment the WHITE QUEEN comes running wildly through the wood with both arms stretched out as if she is flying.) (Helping WHITE QUEEN with her shawl.) May I help you? (To us.) Everything’s crooked, and she’s all over pins.
WHITE QUEEN: (Sadly) I don’t know what’s the matter with that shawl. I’ve pinned it here and I’ve pinned it there, but there’s no pleasing it.
ALICE: (Putting it right as far as she can. ) And what a state your hair is in!
WHITE QUEEN: My hairbrush got tangled up in it! And my comb vanished again.
