A London tailor finds his pleasant and simple life turned upside down when his best friend publishes a wild book about a young woman named Alice and her oddball adventures with a “Mad Hatter.” The character bears a striking resemblance to the tailor. Michael Alan Herman’s play "Mad as a Hatter" imagines a backstory for Lewis Carroll’s creative “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” Get in on the period piece the next two weekends at Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre at the Hjemkomst Center. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays with a 5:30 p.m. show this Sunday. Tickets range from $13 to $25 at
