WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Direct from an acclaimed run in London, the powerful Royal Court Theatre production of Lucy Kirkwood's astonishing new play makes its American debut with the heralded original cast. In a remote cottage on the lonely British coast, a couple of retired nuclear engineers are living a quiet life. Outside, the world is in utter chaos following a devastating series of events. When an old friend turns up at their door, they're shocked to discover the real reason for her visit.
The Children stars BAFTA Award winner Francesca Annis (BBC's Cranford), Olivier winner Deborah Findlay (Stanley), and Olivier nominee Ron Cook (Juno and the Paycock). Directing is the award-winning James Macdonald (Top Girls).
