THE CHILDREN

three people. One planet. 

 

On the lonely British coast, two retired nuclear scientists reside in a quiet cabin while the outside world erupts in utter chaos. An old friend arrives, revealing a frightening request. Winner of Best Play by The U.K. Writers’ Guild Awards, The Children is a “thought-provoking and haunting drama” (The New York Times). Playwright Lucy Kirkwood challenges ideas on morality and generational obligation in a critically acclaimed work just ending its successful Broadway run.
