The Children

WEST COAST PREMIERE



STARTS JAN 31, 2020


By Lucy Kirkwood  |   Directed By Barbara Damashek


 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.
 
“…a richly suggestive and beautifully written piece of work…Kirkwood is the most rewarding dramatist of her generation.”  — The Independent (London)
