In Brixton, Nora and Dora Chance – twin chorus girls born and bred south of the river – are celebrating their 75th birthday. Over the river in Chelsea, their father and greatest actor of his generation Melchior Hazard turns 100 on the same day. As does his twin brother Peregrine. If, in fact, he's still alive. And if, in truth, Melchior is their real father after all... Wise Children is adapted for the stage from Angela Carter's last novel about a theatrical family living in South London. It centres around twin chorus girls, Nora and Dora Chance, whose lives are brimming with mystery, illegitimacy and scandal. Dora narrates the story as her older self, looking back on a tumultuous life, throughout which she and her sister have loved to sing and dance. A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope. Expect show girls and Shakespeare, sex and scandal, music, mischief and mistaken identity – and butterflies by the thousand.
Wise Children is a new theatre company created and led by Emma Rice. It is the beginning of a new chapter, and the culmination of the practice and ethos Emma has developed over her unique 30 year career. From our base in the South West, ...

Culture expert and veteran youth pastor, Mark Matlock, will help you line your family’s story up with God’s story in the world around you, helping you raise wise children who have the character, values, and mission that allows them to go out into the real world and live out a real faith. The Raising Wise Children ebook explores such issues as: • Helping your child make decisions • The importance of failure • Knowing God’s story for your family • Changing the story your family is in • The pursuit of wisdom, and much more God has placed us here to interact with and represent him to the world by engaging with the culture—not retreating from it. Rather than trying to isolate your children from the world or draw lines that keep them from truly engaging in the world God calls us to help and heal, you can learn how to lead your family towards an integrated life where your story and God’s story come together to make a difference in the world around you.
I cannot say this loudly enough: If you are a Christian, you are far more than simply adequate to the task of instilling wisdom in your children—of mitigating information from the perspective of biblical wisdom for your kids.

"Wisdom's Children is an inspired guide to the needs of today's children many of whom simply do not respond to our current educational system. Reading this information brings greater understanding and healing." Dr. Christiane Northrup author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom (Bantam, 2005), The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, 2001), and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom (Bantam, 1998) While in meditation, I sensed the familiar urging of my inner voice, and reached for a pen "Children are arriving in vast numbers to assist in the crossover to an enlightened age. They are a new prototype of human being, and their 'soul' purpose is to help humanity return to love." Wisdom's Children describes a new generation of highly sensitive children whose heightened vibration and consciousness can bring about a transformation in the hearts of humanity. It blends metaphysical information the author received intuitively with her experiences as a teacher and a parent. She has witnessed the beauty of these children as they struggle to adapt to a world and an outmoded educational system that doesn't recognize their expanded perceptions and abilities. "The young beings among you carry an intuitive knowledge of universal truth and reflect your deepest longing as spiritual beings: to live in harmony with each other and the earth."
I told her to call upon her wise self to help her when she was angry, and when she had a decision to make. I reassured her that this loving part of herself was always available, and could help her choose and act in a way that would make ...

In close to fifty sessions, the congress theme - "Shakespeare and the Twentieth Century" - allowed for critical approaches from many directions: through twentieth-century theater history on almost every continent; through a range of media representations from film to databases; through the changing theoretical models of the period that extend to the latest politically inflected readings; and through appropriations of the play-texts by modern art forms such as recent fiction.

“I would regard myself as a feminist writer, because I'm a feminist in everything else and one can't compartmentalise these things in one's life.” (Angela Carter)“When I became a feminist in 1968, I felt that I'd come home: the first home I ever had that was feminine. And it was very wild and theatrical and erotic, the early feminism.” (Michèle Roberts)Angela Carter and Michèle Roberts share a keen interest in gender and sexual identity, but many of their topics seem to mark them as opposites: Roberts's fascination with the impact of religion, motherhood and autobiography on female identity covers areas that Carter shuns in her writings. In reading these two authors parallel and in contrast to each other, this monograph follows a triple objective: it provides a comprehensive critical introduction to the works of Roberts, explores aspects of Carter's work that have not yet been analyzed sufficiently (religion, motherhood, and masculinity), and uses both authors to explore motifs and strategies of feminist writing. The analyses of both authors' works are supplemented by close readings of a wide range of theoretical perspectives (especially French feminism and psychoanalysis) and concise theoretical outlines of the topics covered (radical feminism, religion, motherhood and fatherhood, masculinity, fairy tales, romances and chick lit, and history and auto/biography).
