Emma Rice, celebrated British Theatre Producer, brings her unique and exuberantly impish vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel, Wise Children, from her new theatre company of the same name.
The story tells of a South London theatrical dynasty spanning over a number of decades. The all-singing, all-dancing show features first class performances from a talented ensemble and is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope.
Wise Children received numerous four and five star reviews on its debut at London’s The Old Vic in October 2018 and was filmed for cinemas in March 2019 at the Theatre Royal, York.
