Emma Rice is one the UK’s most well-loved and distinctive theatre directors.

As the former Artistic Director of Kneehigh and then Shakespeare’s Globe, she has spent decades creating shows which are filled with her trademark mix of joy, wonder and magic. And we’ve been lucky enough to have many of them visit our stage: from the melancholy beauty of The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk to the fire-side storytelling of The Little Matchgirl (and other happier tales) and her bold adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebecca.

Come and join us, as Emma chats about her career to date, as well as discussing her new company, Wise Children, and their first show, very proudly co-produced by OP.
