Straight from London, the original Royal Court Theatre production makes its Broadway debut. The Children features BAFTA award winner Francesca Annis, two-time Olivier Award nominee Ron Cook, and Outer Critic Circle Award winner Deborah Findlay. Directed by the award-winning director James MacDonald, celebrated for his plays such as Top Girls - Manhattan, The Book of Grace and King Lear, this powerful play by Lucy Kirkwood is bound to be one of this year’s biggest hits.

Why Watch The Children

Thought provoking and suggestive, The Children by Lucy Kirkwood is a brilliantly funny, yet touching performance that sharpens the awareness of decisions that have been made in today’s times. The gripping storyline by Kirkwood is an engaging sci-fi take on real-life situations and problems. With its original London cast, watch as emotions are brilliantly enacted by this charming and talented star cast.

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
