The Wallis Presents
The Plush Theatricals in association with Wise Children production of
U.S. PREMIERE of the West End hit. Adapted by Emma Rice (Kneehigh’s Brief Encounter and The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk) from the French-Belgian film Les Émotifs Anonymes, this new musical is a treat for all the senses. Angélique makes beautiful chocolates, carefully infused with all the emotion that seems to overwhelm her in daily life. Jean-René runs a chocolate factory that is running out of steam. Both seek help from the usual sources: Jean-René favors self-help tapes, and Angélique joins a support group. Filled with all the joy and pain it takes to survive and love in the modern world, Romantics Anonymous is a tale that will lift any heart.
