‘Let’s have all the skeletons out of the closet, today, of all days!’

In Brixton, twin chorus girls Nora and Dora Chance are celebrating their 75th birthday. Over the river in Chelsea, their father – the greatest actor of his generation, Melchior Hazard - turns 100. If, that is, he’s their real father at all...

A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and pain, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness, and hope. Expect showgirls and Shakespeare, sex and scandal, mischief and mistaken identity - and butterflies by the thousand.

Emma Rice (Romantics Anonymous, Tristan & Yseult, The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk and Brief Encounter) brings her unique, musical and exuberantly impish vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel, Wise Children.
