The Kingsland Ward at St. Johns
(a three-floor, century-old institutional facility)
195 Maujer Street (in Williamsburg)
Brooklyn, NY 11206

Just 15 minutes from Manhattan on the L train
Grand Avenue L Stop (Four stops into Brooklyn),
Near excellent dining and shopping on Grand and Metropolitan Avenues. 

An immersive theater experience combining a hospital ward,
the writings of Lewis Carroll, and just 15 audience members per show.

Then She Fell is a fully immersive, multi-sensory experience in which only 15 audience members per performance explore a dreamscape where every alcove, corner, and corridor has been transformed into lushly designed world. Inspired by the life and writings of Lewis Carroll, it offers an Alice-like experience for audience members as they explore the rooms, often by themselves, in order to discover hidden scenes; encounter performers one-on-one; unearth clues that illuminate a shrouded history; use skeleton keys to gain access to guarded secrets; and imbibe elixirs custom designed by one of NYC’s foremost mixologists.
