Wise Children (15)

Wise Children

Based on the novel by Angela Carter

Adapted and Directed for the stage by Emma Rice

Filmed live at York Theatre Royal in March 2019


Multi-award-winning director Emma Rice brings her unique, exuberantly impish vision to Angela Carter’s great last novel in this brand-new theatre production. 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.  


In Brixton, Nora and Dora Chance - twin chorus girls born and bred south of the river – are celebrating their 75th birthday. Over the river in Chelsea, their father - and greatest actor of his generation - Melchior Hazard turns 100 on the same day. As does his twin brother Peregrine. If, in fact, he’s still alive. And if, in truth, Melchior is their real father after all... Performed by a talented ensemble cast, this entertaining, all-singing and dancing show opened to a raft of 4 and 5-star reviews at London’s Old Vic in 2018. Adapted and directed by Emma Rice, the former Artistic Director of Kneehigh and Shakespeare’s Globe, it was filmed for the cinema screen at York Theatre Royal and is ‘pure, unadulterated theatre.’ (★★★★★ Broadway World)


★★★★★

‘Fantastic. Life-enhancing, brilliantly uninhibited, all-singing and dancing... Stars? I’m not sure why you would stop at five.’ The Observer

★★★★★

‘It's pure, unadulterated theatre with an airtight company, subject, direction, and production. Rice not only blind-casts the whole piece, but single-handedly gives a masterclass on how to play with gender.’ Broadway World

★★★★

‘An explosion of theatrical glee’ The Times

★★★★

‘It is a spectacular show, distilling the carnivalesque spirit of the book... Rice’s relaunch is a splashy one, celebrating the sheer razzle-dazzle of a life in theatre.’ The Guardian

★★★★

‘One huge love letter to theatre’ The Stage

The Mustang (15)

The Mustang

Director: Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre  

Stars: Matthias Schoenaerts, Jason Mitchell, Bruce Dern

Duration: 107 mins


Roman (Matthias Schoenaerts), a convict in a rural Nevada prison who struggles to escape his violent past, is required to participate in an "outdoor maintenance" program as part of his state-mandated social rehabilitation. Spotted by a no-nonsense veteran trainer (Bruce Dern) and helped by an outgoing fellow inmate and trick rider (Jason Mitchell), Roman is accepted into the selective wild horse training section of the program. There he is given an especially unbreakable mustang named Marcus to train. His journey with Marcus inspires a heartfelt connection and challenges him to be a better person.


'A film that's part gritty prison drama and part uplifting horse movie might seem like a strange mix, but "The Mustang" makes it work with authentic performances and a stark beauty'. - Capital Times


'****  Sensational' - Rolling Stone



Tickets: Adults £6.80, U16 £5.80

(includes 30p booking fee per ticket)
