Adapted by Charles G. Taylor from the story by Lewis Padgett.
Cast: 2m., 3w. When a pair of rebellious teenagers get hold of an educational toy from the future, they have no idea what it is teaching them. Bored with school, disliking both the responsibilities and restraints imposed by the adult world, and wanting least of all to join the "rat race of maturity," the brother and sister discover that there may be a way out into some other dimension or time. Lewis Carroll knew of this "other dimension" and left veiled reference to it in the apparent nonsense poem:
"'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Despite the frantic pleas of their parents, the sister and brother use the technique taught them by the toy from the future and vanish out of this world entirely, into another dimension, leaving the parents and audience to wonder where they they went and if they'll ever return. This play is an imaginative jewel, bright, challenging and stimulating. Int. set. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe."
