Wise Children, Bristol Old Vic and Plush Theatricals today announce that Emma Rice’s critically acclaimed Romantics Anonymous will be performed live to a socially distanced audience for the final performance of their ‘digital tour’ on 27th September at Bristol Old Vic. The audience capacity for this performance will be reduced in line with all current guidelines and extra measures will be put in place to keep audience and performers safe.

This announcement comes as the full casting for the production has been confirmed. Reprising their roles the full cast is Marc Antolin (Jean-René), Carly Bawden (Angélique), Me’sha Bryan (Suzanne/Mimi), Harry Hepple (Ludo/Remi), Laura Jane Matthewson (Young Woman), Sandra Marvin (Magda/Brigitte/DrMaxim), PhilipCox (Father/Pierre/Receptionist), Gareth Snook (Mercier/Mumbler/Marini) and Omari Douglas (Salesman/Fred) joins the cast. 

Angélique is a gifted chocolate maker inhibited by social anxiety and Jean-René is the boss of a failing chocolate factory. 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.

The musical is directed by Emma Rice, with a book by Rice, lyrics by Christopher Dimond and music by Michael Kooman. It is based on the film Les Émotifs Anonymes written by Jean-Pierre Améris and Philippe Blasband.
