Emma Rice launches her new theatre company by directing and adapting Angela Carter's evocative final novel, Wise Children, which charts the trials and tribulations of septuagenarian chorus girls Nora and Dora Chance. Rice's first new play since departing from Shakespeare's Globe, Carter's "love letter to the theatre" (as Emma Rice describes it, speaking to The Guardian) is staged at the Old Vic this autumn.

 

About Old Vic Theatre

With the exception of The Globe, the Old Vic has had a greater influence on the history of drama than any theatre standing today. From John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, to Kevin Spacey and Judi Dench, the Vic has played host to generation after generation of stars since it opened its doors in 1818. More about Old Vic Theatre
