|Extra Notes||Joan Lyndsay, adapted by cast; it was a group-devised experimental show in the Union workshopped collectively but also written by Peter Finlay and Tom Bishop. The format was based on the episodes of “Alice in Wonderland”, the premise being that “Alice” was now being given a tour of the lunacy of nuclear weapons research and policy of the present period, just before the rise of Ronald Reagan.|
