Emma Rice launches her new theatre company with this unique and exuberantly impish vision of Angela Carter’s fantastic last novel, Wise Children at The Old Vic from October 8th - November 10th 2018.

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

The date is 23rd April, Shakespeare’s birthday.

Nora and Dora Chance are two Brixton girls – twin chorus girls both born and bred south of the river – and today they are celebrating their 70th birthday. Over on the other side of the river in Chelsea, their father and possibly the greatest actor of his generation Melchior Hazard celebrates his centenary on the same day along with his own twin brother Peregrine. If, in fact, he’s actually still alive. And if, in truth, Melchior is really their father after all…...

Wise Children is a larger than life, bawdy tangle of theatrical heartbreak and joy that celebrates show business, family, hope and forgiveness. You can expect to see show girls, Shakespeare, scandal and sex along with music, mistaken identity and mischief– and butterflies by the bucketload.
