ALICE IN PLUNDERLAND or ALEC IN WONDERLAND

Ubu Hour Radio Theater presents ALEC IN WONDERLAND/ or ALICE IN PLUNDERLAND. The White Rabbit brings Alice back to Wonderland, to combat ALEC (The American Legislative Exchange Council), The Red Queen (Michele Bachmann) and the utterly Mad Tea Party as they subvert freedoms to allow the large corporations and the rich and powerful to become even richer and more powerful. It's a strange, surreal trip that involves militaristic playing cards, horny rodents, mad hatters, Jabbersquawks who spew the airwaves with hate propaganda, and a talking cake who says "EAT ME!" Learn how the trickle down theory of economics benefits the poor and disposessed... A non-stop adventure into the bizarre, strange and profane...
