About the Show

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.

Contains mature themes. Children should be 14 years of age or older to attend this performance.

  • These retired nuclear scientists are faced with a choice that would likely endanger their lives, for the sake of preserving the future. What responsibility might an older generation have towards the well being of later generations? What would you be willing to do for the sake of your children or grandchildren?
