Wise Children

A performance of Emma Rice's ebullient theatrical production of Angela Carter's deliciously dark final novel, a story of twins from a dysfunctional family who pursue a career performing as showgirls.

A performance of Emma Rice's ebullient theatrical production of Angela Carter's deliciously dark final novel, Wise Children, filmed live at the York Theatre Royal in 2019.

A decadent and often surreal story of twins from a dysfunctional family who pursue a career performing as showgirls.

Loved by audiences and critics since its premiere at The Old Vic, London, in 2019, Wise Children is an unapologetic celebration of the highs and lows that come from choosing to experience life to the full, come what may.
