PERFORMED LIVE ON STAGE AND BROADCAST DIRECT TO YOUR HOME!

We’re delighted to be teaming up with Wise Children, Bristol Old Vic and Plush Theatricals to bring you Emma Rice’s critically-acclaimed musical adaptation of Romantics Anonymous – performed at Bristol Old Vic, and broadcast live, direct to audience’s homes nationally and globally. Theatre Royal Bath will be hosting the performance for the South West on THURSDAY 24 SEPTEMBER at 7.30pm.

Add a few ingredients
Bold and brave and new
Don’t you love how chocolate is so unlike you?
 
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.

★★★★ “A multi-faceted gem, chock-full of love, generosity and joy” Guardian

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 ChildrenTristan & Yseult), this beautiful new musical was meant to be on a tour of USA before the pandemic struck. We’re now delighted to be able to bring it back, with this fully staged live stream coming direct from Bristol Old Vic to audiences at home, in all its glory!

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
