Wise Children (2019)

Director Emma Rice brings her unique, musical and exuberantly impish vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel, in a production that has been seen at theatres across the UK. A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and pain, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope. Expect show girls and Shakespeare, sex and scandal, mischief and mistaken identity – and butterflies galore. Loved by audiences and critics since its premiere at The Old Vic, London, in 2019, Wise Children has been seen by theatregoers across the UK. With support from The Space, it was filmed live at York Theatre Royal in 2019.
