Whereas the first book has the deck of playing cards as a theme, Through the Looking-Glass is based on a game of chess, played on a giant chessboard with fields for squares.

The sequence of moves white and red is not always followed. Lewis Carroll decided to suppress a scene involving what was described as "a wasp in a wig" possibly a play on the commonplace expression "bee in the bonnet".

It featured most of the elements from Through the Looking Glass as well, including W.

Alice was played in both parts by Laura Wickham. It was staged in the summer of Laura Wade's Alice, a modern adaptation of both books premiering at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield in , adapted parts of both novels.
