We could not be more proud. The show marks the beginning of Wise Children as a company, the start of an exciting new chapter for Emma Rice and her collaborators, and the culmination of many months of hard work by a stellar creative and production team.
Wise Children is an adaptation of Angela Carter’s last novel, which is in itself a tender love letter to the theatre. And it’s timely: a story about the strength and agency of women, told by a diverse cast, the show is already resonating with audiences and provoking discussion.
We are giddy with excitement and overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from our audiences so far, and hope many more of you will join us over the coming months. The show remains at The Old Vic, where Wise Children is Resident Company, until 10th November and then begins a UK tour.
Enormous thanks go out to all our producing partners, collaborators, supporters and members of the Wise Children Club. Without you this journey would not have been possible.
