NeverWonder is a new, Mad, and Queer Canadian musical combining two beloved world lores (J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan and Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland/Through The Looking Glass) and tells the poignant story of two young women who bond over the adventures and mishaps of their fantastical childhoods, and follows their journey of support and recovery.
This show hinges on topics of Madness, mental illness, trauma, and LGBTQ+ topics.
The best way to describe NeverWonder is a queer Alice (Wonderland) and Wendy (Neverland) fanfiction about surviving trauma in the musical form. (fringetoronto.com)
