The Alice Archive

A collection of material relating to Ant and Richard Scott's musical Alice, which was staged at the Leeds Playhouse in 1984.

Once upon a time there was a girl called Alice but, instead of falling down a rabbit hole, she got hitched up on a computer date.  This technologically superior 'Alice' is the heroine of a new rock musical written by Richard Scott, a social psychologist, and Anthony Phillips, who hates being tagged as 'founder member of the rock group Genesis' but was.  Now he is relishing the very different problems of writing a musical. (From a press preview article)
