A true celebration of show-biz!

Why See Wise Children?

Plays

A Madcap New Show!

Emma Rice brings her unique and exquisite vision to the Old Vic this autumn with Wise Children. Based on the book by Angela Carter, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, and forgiveness. One big tangle of bawdy theatrical joy, full of sex, scandal and some Shakespearian mistaken identity and you have yourself one of a thrill ride!

Born and bred south-London show girls Nora and Dora Chance are celebrating their 70th birthday. Across the river their father, who is the celebrated Melchoir Hazard, is turning 100 on the same day, alongside his twin brother Peregrine, well that is if Peregrine is still alive.. and actually is Melchior the girls' father at all?
