The Children

Synopsis

“Retired people are like nuclear power stations. We like to live by the sea.”

Former nuclear scientists Hazel and Robin are enjoying the quiet life, feeding the cows and practising yoga, while the world around them is descending into chaos. When an old colleague arrives on their doorstep harbouring a deadly secret, the fallout will be explosive.

Olivier Award-winning writer Lucy Kirkwood deftly weaves charged global issues with everyday domestic squabbles, in a riotous fusion of irreverent wit and gripping drama. A dark yet glorious delight.

Strong language.

There will be no interval during this performance.

Directed by Stefan Escreet
