Emma Rice's new adaptation of Angela Carter’s seminal final novel, Wise Children arrives at The Old Vic this October.

Set in Brixton in South London, Wise Children is a richly comic tale of the tangled fortunes of two theatrical families, celebrating the magic of show business and exploring the subversive nature of fatherhood, family and forgiveness. 

The story follows identical twin sisters Nora and Dora Chance as they celebrate their 75th birthday. Over the river in Chelsea, their father, renowned Shakespearean thespian Melchior Hazard, and his twin brother Peregrine turn 100 on the same day. But is Melchior their real father after all…

This production is not recommended for children under the age of 14.
