THE STORY!

A curious girl who falls down a rabbit hole (Alice).  
The lead singer of an iconic ‘60s rock band (Grace).  
The poor, nameless star of a classic druggie diary (Anonymous?). Three oddly- connected heroines inhabit three separate worlds, playing out their stories exactly as expected.  But when those worlds collide...


well, I guess you'll have to come see us to find out what happens THEN.

THE GLOSSARY!  

Christ Church.  One of the largest and most prestigious colleges in the University of Oxford, and the Cathedral Church for the Diocese of Oxford.  Henry Liddell, Alice’s father, became its Dean in 1856, and it is there that the family first met Charles Dodgson, then a student, as he was photographing the Cathedral one April afternoon. 
 
Dodgson, Charles.  Come on, you know Lewis Carroll is a pen name!  In addition to his accomplishments as author, mathematician, logician and Anglican deacon, in the 1850s he rapidly mastered the brand-new medium of photography.  His subjects included men, grown-ups, skeletons, dolls, dogs, paintings, trees and, of course, young Alice Liddell, the real-life model for his literary Alice.  And a brunette.
 
Freak Wharf.  According to urbandictionary.com, a slang term for a mental institution, apparently completely made up and never used by anyone else but the author
of Go Ask Alice. (See Sparks, Beatrice)

The Great Society.  Short-lived but influential San Francisco rock band formed in the summer of 1965.  Original group of Jefferson Airplane lead singer Grace Slick, it featured then-husband Jerry Slick on drums.  On Halloween night 1966, Slick left the band to join Jefferson Airplane, a slightly more successful band formed the same year by Paul Kantner and Marty Balin.  She brought two Great Society songs with her, Somebody to Love and White Rabbit, which would become JA’s first hits. 
 
Sparks, Beatrice.  Therapist and Mormon youth counselor whose books purporting to be diaries of troubled teenagers read as cautionary tales on issues like drug abuse, Satanism, teen pregnancy and AIDS. Her most famous pseudo-memoir, Go Ask Alice, is still read in some high schools as a work of nonfiction, and remains the most frequently censored book in school libraries.  Obviously a proponent of healthy living, Sparks died in May 2012 at the age of 95. 
 
Stratego.  Classic Milton Bradley board game.  The first to capture their enemy’s flag is the winner!
 
Welk, Lawrence.  American accordionist, bandleader, television impresario known for his “champagne” music.  His television program featuring pastel-clad singing spouses and sisters – and those “wunnerful, wunnerful” bubbles -- ran from 1955 to 1982.
