Return of the beautiful new musical directed by Emma Rice (Malory Towers, Wise Children, Kneehigh).
Angélique is a gifted chocolate maker crippled by social anxiety; 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.
Funny, tender and painfully awkward, Romantics Anonymous is a delicious love story about breaking the mould and finding the courage to be happy.
After a successful debut at BOV, Romantics Anonymous was destined for a tour of the USA before the pandemic struck. It now returns with this fully staged live stream coming direct from Bristol Old Vic to audiences at home across the world.
Sept 22-26, streamed live from Bristol Old Vic, 7.30pm (Sat 26 9pm, £22.50. Ages 8+.
