For one week only, Romantics Anonymous will be performed again, LIVE ON STAGE at the Bristol Old Vic! Wise Children will be bringing it live into your home – each night will be a truly one-off experience.

Wise Children, Bristol Old Vic & Plush Theatricals present Romantics Anonymous
Directed by Emma Rice | Book by Emma Rice | Lyrics by Christopher Dimond | Music by Michael Kooman | Based on the film Les Émotifs Anonymes written by Jean-Pierre Améris and Philippe Blasband

★★★★ “A multifaceted gem, chock-full of love, generosity and joy” The Guardian

★★★★ “An intimate, delectably joyous mix of the silly and the stirring” The Independent

Angélique is a gifted chocolate maker crippled by social anxiety and Jean-René is the boss of a failing chocolate factory. Angélique is so timid, she faints when people look at her; Jean-René so awkward he relies on self-help tapes and is prone to embarrassing sweating. When Angélique takes a job in Jean-René’s struggling factory, a fragile love affair unfolds.

Funny, tender and painfully awkward, Romantics Anonymous is a delicious love story about breaking the mould and finding the courage to be happy.

Directed by Emma Rice (Malory Towers, Wise Children, Tristan & Yseult), this beautiful new musical was meant to be on a tour of USA before the pandemic struck. We are now delighted to be able to bring it back in all its glory, with this fully staged live stream coming direct from Bristol Old Vic to audiences at home!

This is the London and South East live stream performance presented in partnership with Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, Marlowe Theatre. Norwich Theatre and The Old Vic as part of a 5-performance livestream tour. Each live streamed show will be dedicated to, and slightly tweaked for, audiences in different parts of the world.

The world premiere of Romantics Anonymous was originally produced by Shakespeare’s Globe for the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse by special arrangement with Radio Mouse Entertainment.
