Soliloquy about wonderland portrays daily situations to which we all react on an intuitive and similar way. They are life matters that someone has already talked about in a lost speech, somewhere.... That remained exactly that. The unavoidableness death, problems of loneliness, heart, environmental, problems which wouldn ́t be fatal if we simply listened....

During the play the audience will enjoy truly inner moments contrasting with others of pure enjoyment, where the characters dress themselves in a nocturnal environment of entertainment and glamour. A metamorphosis that can be seen as a theraphy, alternative to deception and incapacity to overcome alone worlwide sadness. But there is always hope, a light that stays alight even under pouring rain.
