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, which is also the namesake of her new Production Company.
Rice will even be stepping into one of the star roles herself and make her debut at Richmond Theatre in the role of Nora Chance.
“We've been on such a glorious adventure with our company,” said Rice. “I can't think of a better way to finish our debut tour than stepping into the limelight alongside our wonderful cast to perform in Richmond.
It's an honour to share the stage with them and I'm very much looking forward to it!”
'What a joy it is to dance and sing!'
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.
Direct from its open in the West End, expect showgirls and Shakespeare, sex and scandal, mischief and mistaken identity - and butterflies by the thousand!
