Cate Blanchett features in this delicately surreal play.

Whisking us down a rabbit hole and into a wonderland-like world, Big and Small transports us to a hotel dining room where Lotte sits alone.

Courageously optimistic and perpetually disappointed, Lotte is in constant search for human connection. She is rejected by her husband, unrecognised by old friends and unfamiliar with her family. Like Carroll’s Alice, sometimes Lotte is too big for her surroundings and sometimes too small to be noticed within them.

Cate Blanchett was named Best Actress in a leading role in a major production at the 2011 Sydney Theatre Awards for this part.

'Cate Blanchett gives a stunningly expressive performance... she is magnificent.' The Australian
