Here's to starting off 2015 with a bang! Ashley will play the role of Edith Liddell in the world premiere production of The Missing Pages of Lewis Carroll at The Theatre @ Boston Court. This play is written by Lily Blau and will be directed by Abigail Deser.
Performances will take place at Boston Court Theatre in Pasadena, with previews beginning January 22, 2015, and regular performances from January 31 to March 1. For more information and tickets, please visit www.bostoncourt.com.
The beloved British writer Lewis Carroll kept a detailed journal of his life, including his close friendship with young Alice Liddell, the 11-year-old muse who inspired Alice in Wonderland. Upon Carroll’s death it was discovered that several pages of this otherwise immaculate journal had been torn out. Now after more than a century of swirling rumors, this play takes us down the rabbit hole to explore these missing pages and what might have occurred between the legendary storyteller and the young girl who inspired one of the most famous stories ever written.
