Emma Rice has announced that her new company’s first production, the stage adaptation of Angela Carter’s novel Wise Children, will tour the UK following its world premiere at the Old Vic in October.
The piece, which is about twin chorus girls and their bizarre theatrical family, runs at the Old Vic from 8 October to 10 November, before touring to Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol, York and Coventry, with further venues to be announced soon.
Created and led by the former Shakespeare’s Globe artistic director, Wise Children is based in the south west with the aim to create ensemble work to tour nationally and internationally.
To mark the launch of the company, tickets for the final dress rehearsal at the Old Vic will be available free, available through a lottery via Wise Children’s website.
Performances at Oxford Playhouse 13 – 17 November 2018
