Wise Children is a new theatre company conceived, created and led by director Emma Rice. Wise Children marks the beginning of a new chapter and the culmination of the practice and ethos Emma has developed over her unique 30-year career, which has included tenure as artistic director of Shakespeare’s Globe and of Kneehigh Theatre. Determined to not only share some of Emma’s processes and adventures, but also to document this unique time, the team have been busy recording key company moments over the last months, and this podcast aims to chart the beginning of Wise Children’s journey.
