Angela Carter's Wise Children (2019)

Multi-award-winning director Emma Rice brings her unique vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel in this brand-new theatre production, which was filmed for the cinema at York Theatre Royal.

A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope, with a generous dash of Shakespeare, scandal and mischief.

In Brixton, Nora and Dora Chance - twin chorus girls born and bred south of the river - are celebrating their 75th birthday. Over the river in Chelsea, their father - and greatest actor of his generation - Melchior Hazard turns 100 on the same day. As does his twin brother Peregrine, if, in fact, he's still alive.

Performed by a talented ensemble cast, this entertaining, all-singing and dancing show opened to a raft of 4 and 5-star reviews at London’s Old Vic in 2018.
