About the Play
Humorous, harrowing, and profoundly timely, in “The Children” two retired nuclear scientists reside in an isolated cottage by the sea as the world around them crumbles. Together they are going to live forever on yogurt and yoga, until an old friend arrives with a frightening request. In answering her, they must resolve a question we all face: What, exactly, do we owe to future generations?
“Completely successful as an eco-thriller, bristling with chills and suspense” (The New York Times), “The Children” was first performed at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Downstairs and was produced on Broadway by the Manhattan Theatre Club and the Royal Court Theatre.Sign Up for Updates
