The play imagines a fictitious encounter between the reclusive writer and photographer Charles Dodgson (also known as Lewis Carroll) who invites celebrity author Charles Dickens to his home at Christ Church, Oxford in 1866 to pose for a portrait. Dickens is so intrigued by Carroll’s whimsical Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland that he accepts.

The story of the play that unfolds is a baring of two creative souls, the one private and fastidious, the other boisterous and irreverent. As Dodgson struggles to capture a “perfect likeness” of Dickens with his camera, Dickens craftily pries into Dodgson’s personal life to get a handle on one of the most curious men he has ever met. The result is a hilarious and revealing conversation between two quirky, fascinating, and completely different men.
