    Multi-award-winning director Emma Rice brings her unique, exuberantly impish vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel in this brand-new play. A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is ‘pure, unadulterated theatre’ (★★★★★ Broadway World) performed by a talented ensemble cast. A celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope, with a generous dash of Shakespeare, scandal and mischief, this colourful all-singing and dancing show takes the audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotion.

    Filmed live at York Theatre Royal in March 2019
