Alice & The Bunny Hole

In Alex DeFazio's take on the Lewis Carroll classic, Alice enters a new world that is not only curious but also bi-curious—or pan-curious, as Twinkydee and Twinkydum would have it. As Twinkydee also says, “Monogamy is the interpersonal version of terrorism,” but what else would you expect from a couple that Alice and her boyfriend find on swingcity.com and agree to meet at a club called the Bunny Hole? Regulars include a DJ who can barely stay awake long enough to drop a beat, a tiny-hatted man who speaks in Carrollesque riddles, a Prince of Hearts whom few would find charming, and Bunny himself—the omnipresent, pocket-watch-wearing club owner. DeFazio artfully creates a kinky wonderland that is addicting for both Alice and the audience; in the second act, however, the play veers into predictability, and its thematic hinting turns into hammering. By the time Alice tells Bunny that she needs to leave and return to real life, you may already be wishing that you could do the same.

A wonderful play of wit and characters. Amusing and entertaining, both humorous and thoughtful. Quite tolerable for a heterosexual.
