Created and led by Emma Rice, Wise Children launched in April 2018 and is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation. Based in the South West, we make ground-breaking work with exceptional artists, and tour across the world. In the dark days of 2020, we led the field in live streaming, becoming the first UK company to broadcast a fully staged production, without social distancing, from a UK theatre after lockdown.


Alongside our shows, we run a unique professional training programme, The School for Wise Children. Led by Emma, and her award-winning collaborators, the School for Wise Children offers workshops, courses and other opportunities for fearless, free-thinking theatre makers and emerging companies. For more information about The School and how to train with Wise Children, click here.


The Wise Children Club is our community: a growing group of allies who support our work and share our vision. Right now, as we face uncertain and difficult times, we need the Club more than ever!

Members receive exclusive insights into our work, opportunities to talk to Emma and the rest of the Wise Children team, discounts and priority booking at The Lucky Chance, among many other benefits. 


But joining the Wise Children Club is also about so much more than that! Our dream is that Club members become our ambassadors both online and in public. They spread the word, bring their friends and look for opportunities for Wise Children to grow as a creative force for good.
