Wit & Wisdom

From July 23–24, the Royal Exchange Theatre’s Elders and Young Company come together to create and perform a new intergenerational production, exploring all things funny.

Following the digital series Connect Fest, created in lockdown, Wit & Wisdom promises an anarchic night—the perfect mismatch of chaos and calm.

The show is devised by the company and features music composed by company member Bill Connor and performed live by him and members of the Young Company.
