Princess Ida, as seen through the eyes of a mad girl

No, I don't mean the title character... I mean Miss Alice Liddell, who naturally wanted to see the Antipodean theatrical conventions.

Everything's so much slower out here. We spend most of a week getting set up (instead of most of a day) and then spend two weeks performing. There's no time for word-of-mouth at the Festival - not for the amateur shows, at least.
