New play ‘Wise Children’ comes to cinemas worldwide

More2Screen is delighted to announce that the critically acclaimed 5-star play Wise Children, adapted and directed by Emma Rice from the novel by Angela Carter, will be distributed to cinemas worldwide from 3 October 2019.

Emma Rice brings her unique, exuberantly impish vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel. A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope, with a generous dash of Shakespeare, scandal and mischief taking the audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotion. Performed by a talented ensemble cast, this entertaining show opened to a raft of 4 and 5-star reviews at London’s Old Vic in 2018, before embarking on a regional tour. The play was filmed for the cinema screen at York Theatre Royal in March 2019.

Emma Rice is a multi-award-winning theatre director and actor who launched her own theatre company in 2018 as the next step in a career that included her tenure as Artistic Director of Kneehigh (credits include Brief EncounterThe Red ShoesCymberline and A Matter of Life and Death) and Shakespeare’s Globe (Twelfth NightA Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Little Matchgirl).

Christine Costello, CEO and Founder of More2Screen comments: “The appetite for first-rate theatre events at the cinema continues to grow and we’re thrilled that this vibrant and inventive production of Wise Children from the celebrated director Emma Rice will be seen by cinema audiences around the world in the autumn.”
