Don’t you love how chocolate is so unlike you?
Angélique is a gifted chocolate maker inhibited by social anxiety and Jean-René is the boss of a failing chocolate factory. Angelique is so timid, she faints when people look at her; Jean-Rene so awkward he relies on self-help tapes and is prone to embarrassing sweating. When Angelique takes a job in Jean-Rene’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 now brought to Bristol by Wise Children.
