Abstract

Lewis Carroll’s books "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass" have one of the fantasy genre’s greatest examples of a character learning to find her place in the world. They pose the question: how do you know if you are a sane person in an insane world or an insane person in a sane world? My dark comedy screenplay is about a woman named Alice who believes she is the former but slowly has to accept the fact that she may just be the latter. She is independent to a fault and has to learn through the trials she faces in the story, most of which are caused by her own stubbornness, that there are times when she does indeed need to accept help from others. Alice must acknowledge that not everyone around her is insane, or rather, that she is just as insane as they are.
