Old Vic to stage “Wise Children”
A new adaptation of Angela Carter’s novel, Wise Children, will open Matthew Warchus’ fourth Season as Artistic Director of The Old Vic in October, with a second production to follow.
Created and led by Emma Rice, Wise Children will conceive, create and present world-class, innovative ensemble theatre; a culmination of the process and ethos Emma has developed over her theatrical career. Her bold, imaginative productions and gift for storytelling have made her one of the most important and acclaimed directors working today.
