The Children by Lucy Kirkwood

TONY AWARD NOMINATION FOR BEST PLAY
WINNER OF BEST PLAY AT THE 2018 UK WRITERS’ GUILD AWARDS

Charged with intensity, The Children is an atomic drama about the responsibility of generations to those that follow.

Robin and Hazel, two nuclear scientists, live a quiet existence in their isolated cottage on the coast.

Yes, electricity is rationed. Yes, radiation fills the air. Yes, it’s safer to leave the house in a hazmat suit.

But they are determined to enjoy the retirement they worked so hard for.

That is, until old friend and colleague Rose arrives, bringing with her a past Robin and Hazel had left behind, and a frightening challenge for their future.

“A richly suggestive and beautifully written piece of work.” The Independent

DIRECTOR Mel Cantwell
CAST Nicola Bartlett, Humphrey Bower, Caroline Brazier
SET & COSTUME DESIGNER Bruce McKinven
