Written by Lucy Kirkwood
Directed by Michael Shamata

Robin and Hazel are two retired nuclear scientists, living in a seaside cottage on the east coast of England. But all is not as it seems. Their electricity is restricted to evenings, and they have a Geiger counter in the kitchen. On a warm summer’s evening, Rose, an old friend and colleague arrives from America with a startling request.

“Award-winning playwright Lucy Kirkwood’s brilliant play asks big questions about the responsibility we face to leave a better world for the next generation. How do we reconcile our mistakes with their impact on the future, and who is meant to clean up after us?” -Michael Shamata


“The Children is both a tragic love story (or rather, stories) and an archetypal hero’s journey. And it’s highly compelling theatre to boot.”Times Colonist
