Emma Rice and Wise Children's BAGDAD CAFÉ at The Old Vic
We are delighted to share that Wise Children will be returning to The Old Vic this July with their new show, BAGDAD CAFÉ.
‘It’s showtime at the Bagdad Gas and Oil Café!’
Smack bang in the middle of nowhere (or was it somewhere on the legendary Route 66?) two women are thrown together by chance. Stranded tourist Jasmin stumbles out of her unhappy marriage and finds herself at Brenda’s remote cafe and motel.
Ordinarily, no one would choose to stay at the Bagdad Café but in the dust and isolation, unexpected and extraordinary friendships begin to blossom. The lost are found as individuals transform into an eclectic community bound by music, magic and some very strong coffee.
The show will run from 19 July - 21 August, with streaming options from 25 - 28 August. Find out more here.
