Following its critically acclaimed world premiere at the Old Vic, Wise Children – written by Angela Carter, adapted and directed by Emma Rice – comes to York Theatre Royal this March.

In Brixton, Nora and Dora Chance – twin chorus girls born and bred south of the river – are celebrating their 75th birthday. Over the river in Chelsea, their father and greatest actor of his generation Melchior Hazard turns 100 on the same day. As does his twin brother Peregrine. If, in fact, he’s still alive.  And if, in truth, Melchior is their real father after all…

A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope. Expect showgirls and Shakespeare, sex and scandal, music, mischief and mistaken identity – and butterflies by the thousand.

Wise Children is at York Theatre Royal from 5 to 16 March 2019. Tickets cost from £17. Book online at or call the Box Office on 01904 623 568 .
