A Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds Production.

 

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

Two retired nuclear scientists reside in an isolated cottage by the sea as the world around them slowly crumbles. Together they are going to live forever on yogurt and yoga, until an old friend arrives with a frightening request.

 

Hailed as one of the top 3 plays in The Guardian’s recent ‘Best Theatre shows of the 21st Century’, The Children premiered at London’s Royal Court Theatre in 2016 and then transferred to Broadway where it was nominated for Best Play at both the Tony Awards and the Outer Critics Circle, and is now staged by Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds as part of our commitment to presenting the best plays of the last 10 years.

Lucy Kirkwood’s previous plays also include Chimerica (winner of the Olivier Award for Best Play, the Evening Standard Award, and the Critics’ Circle Best New Play Award).

Age Guidance: 12+
