York Theatre Royal: Wise Children

3 October @ 19:00 - 21:30


Tickets on sale approx six weeks before event | £12.50

We will be showing Wise Children specially recorded at the York Theatre Royal on Thursday 3rd October at 7.00pm.

Multi-award-winning director Emma Rice brings her unique, exuberantly impish vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel in this brand-new theatre production.

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, taking the audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotion.

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. And if, in truth, Melchior is their real father after all…

Doors open 30 minutes before the performance commences. Please arrive in plenty of time to register and, if you wish,  order interval drinks.

The Observer   ★★★★★  Fantastic. Life-enhancing, brilliantly uninhibited, all-singing and dancing… Stars? I’m not sure why you would stop at five.

The Times   ★★★★  An explosion of theatrical glee

The Guardian   ★★★★  It is a spectacular show, distilling the carnivalesque spirit of the book… Rice’s relaunch is a splashy one, celebrating the sheer razzle-dazzle of a life in theatre.

The Stage  ★★★★  One huge love letter to theatre

Evening Standard   ★★★★  Emma Rice does justice to the verve and racy humour of Carter’s writing… tinged with melancholy yet joyous and inventive.

Daily Mail   ★★★★  Bonkers but brilliant, a very English Rice pudding
