Share This Event
Romantics Anonymous will perform again for one week only, streaming from the Bristol Old Vic – this is living breathing theatre, happening in the moment, shared with a live audience. So, whilst it won’t be the same as actually going to the theatre, we still think this will be a glorious night out. We hope you’ll get dressed up, dim the lights, enjoy the blissfully short queue for loos, and share the chocolate.
Wise Children, Bristol Old Vic & Plush Theatricals present

Book by Emma Rice, Lyrics by Christopher Dimond, Music by Michael Kooman
Based on the film Les Émotifs Anonymes written by Jean-Pierre Améris and Philippe Blasband
Angélique is a gifted chocolate maker crippled 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.
**** A multi-faceted gem, chock-full of love, generosity and joy – The Guardian
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.
Before rehearsals start, the Romantics Anonymous team will be tested for COVID-19 and, once given the all clear, will isolate in a large bubble. Using the guidelines developed by sport, TV and film, the team will be kept safe and well. These rigorous measures mean that the show will be performed in full – without social distancing.
