Romantics AnonymousA New Musical
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 inhibited by social anxiety, so timid, she faints when people look at her. Jean-René is the boss of a failing chocolate factory, awkward, prone to embarrassing sweating and relies on self-help tapes. 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.
Based on the hit film Les Émotifs Anonymes and directed by Emma Rice (Malory Towers, Wise Children), this beautiful new musical is brought exclusively to Bristol by Wise Children, ahead of its major international tour.
Supported by Paul and Joanna Pearson
