Vacant for thirty years, the Greenpoint Hospital already looks like the set of a dark fantasy, a place where the macabre and whimsical can come out and play. Kind of like Alice in Wonderland.
And now, theater company Third Rail Projects wants to turn the hospital into a dark wonderland of their own. Their upcoming “immersive theater experience” Then She Fell, will allow guests to wander through different scenes, “part hospital and part psychological wonderland”, experiencing things both as they are and as they appear in Alice’s mind. The show is set to open in October–and, well, you know what to do.
