Romantics Anonymous

Romantics Anonymous

5 out of 5, based on 8 ratings and 8 reviews.
  • Romantics Anonymous is an unusual and tender love story in which the obstacles to happiness are not the usual external barriers, but those sneaky little ones we know all too intimately: the ones within.

    ‘Add a few ingredients
    Bold, and brave, and new.
    Don’t you love how chocolate
    is so unlike you?’

    Angélique makes beautiful chocolates, carefully infused with all the emotion that seems to overwhelm her in daily life. Jean-René runs a chocolate factory that is running out of steam, rather like his own existence. Both seek help from the usual sources: Jean-René favours self-help tapes and Angélique joins a support group, Les Émotifs Anonymes.

    Adapted by Emma Rice from the French-Belgian film Les Émotifs Anonymes, with lyrics and music by Christopher Dimond and Michael Kooman, this new musical promises to be a treat for all the senses. Filled with all the joy and pain it takes to survive and love in the modern world, this is a tale that will lift any heart.

    Romantics Anonymous runs at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse until 6 January 2018, book your Romantics Anonymous tickets today!
