It’s “two on the aisle” over at Red Bank oRBit, where yesterday we gave you the backstory on a new production of Barefoot in the Park, going into previews tonight at Two River Theater. In today’s edition we take it down to New Jersey Repertory Company in Long Branch, where the professional playhouse prepares to premiere a new drama by the name of Exposure Time.

Based on events in the life of Alice in Wonderland author (and pioneer photographer) Lewis Carroll — his competition with a famed female portrait artist of the Victorian era, and his controversial relationship with the real-life version of Alice — the play by Kim Merrill promises to surf a wave of renewed interest in various denizens of the Wonderland underground, courtesy of Disney’s forthcoming 3-D thrillride Alice.

We’ve got a conversation with the playwright and a first look at how this Exposure‘s developed, right here in Red Bank oRBit!
