Wise Children, Bristol Old Vic & Plush Theatricals present



Sep 26 - Oct 02


Directed by Emma Rice (Kneehigh’s Brief Encounter and The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk), this award-winning musical was meant to be on a tour of the USA before the pandemic struck. The Wallis is thrilled to present the digital U.S. Premiere with a fully staged live broadcast coming direct from the U.K.'s Bristol Old Vic Theatre to audiences at home across the world, in all its glory!

The story centers around Angélique who 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 love and survive in the modern world, Romantics Anonymous is a tale that will lift any heart. Read The New York Times story on the digital U.S. Premiere.
