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 crippled by social anxiety and 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.

Directed by Emma Rice (Malory Towers, Wise ChildrenTristan & Yseult), this beautiful new musical was meant to be on a tour of USA before the pandemic struck. We’re now delighted to be able to bring it back, with this fully staged live stream coming direct from Bristol Old Vic to audiences at home, in all its glory!

As an official partner, Capital Theatres will receive a percentage of ticket sales. Please note tickets are sold through Wise Children's official website.


The feel-good factor is through the roof; you really will leave the theatre ‘dancing on air’ and beaming from ear to ear
