Bold and brave and new
Don’t you love how chocolate is so unlike you?"
Emma Rice directs Wise Children's new musical adaptation of the hit film Les Émotifs Anonymes at Bristol Old Vic from 18 January to 1 February, before embarking on a major international tour.
Angélique is a gifted chocolate maker inhibited by social anxiety, so timid, she faints when people look at her. Jean-René is the boss of a failing chocolate factory, awkward, prone to embarrassing sweating and relies on self-help tapes. 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.
