Understanding Lewis utilizes the classic archetypes from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland to tell a new story about the end of seemingly irrevocable loneliness. The play follows Lewis who lives on the outskirts of society and is constantly tormented by figments of his own imagination. These figments, which are the embodiments of classic Wonderland characters, are determined to make sure that nothing changes in Lewis' life.
