The play is adapted from Lewis Carroll by Madge Miller. In this production, Alice is cautioned by the Rabbit to take good care of the Queen's tarts, which are to be served shortly at the Croquet Match. While Alice's back is turned, the tarts are stolen; and Alice, realizing that the Rabbit will lose his head if the tarts are not discovered in time, goes in search of the thief. Her quest leads her through a maze of incredible adventures, endeared to everybody by Lewis Carroll's memorable story, climaxed by a trial scene, where the thief is discovered.
