The Story

In a small, remote cottage located on a British coast, a couple of retired nuclear engineers live a quiet life — blissfully unaware of the chaotic situation that prevails in the outside world. However, when an old friend shows up at their doorstep, they’re shocked to learn about the reason for her visit. Find out what they discover.

Critics Reviews

“Deftly interweaving political with personal, Lucy Kirkwood introduces added rationales to the play that is best left unrevealed to the audience. The Children deals with a navigating script that leaves the audience off-guard.”
- The New York Times

“The Children, Lucy Kirkwood’s ingenious new play, takes a shrewd look at the guilt that generation might feel about the world they are leaving behind them.”
- The Guardian
