About The Children
A long-married couple live in a ramshackle cottage near the edge of a nuclear disaster that recalls the 2011 Fukushima catastrophe. Intruding into their somewhat eccentric existence comes Rose, a former co-worker at the power station whose appearance after 30 years is a mystery that will inspire both laughter and an increasing sense of menace. But Rose is on an important mission.
A recent hit on Broadway after successful run at London’s Royal Court, Lucy Kirkwood’s unique play is a beautifully written puzzle about personal responsibility, guilt, and what today’s elders owe the young.
