“A richly suggestive and beautifully written piece of work, provoking questions that will continue to nag and expand in your mind…The genius of the play is to embed its pressingly topical preoccupations in a humane, tragicomic scenario that is never, despite the circumstances, portentous or clangingly apocalyptic in tone…The Children consolidates my view that Kirkwood is the most rewarding dramatist of her generation.” ―Independent

“Sly, gripping, darkly funny…This is sci-fi kitted out with real people, real dilemmas, real scope. It’s really good.” ―The Times

“Grips compulsively…Genuinely disturbing…Leaves you an abundance of ideas on which to ruminate.” ―Guardian

“A far-reaching, unsettling play about legacy, survival and responsibility…Deceptively lightly written and often tartly funny…Kirkwood tackles huge themes and poses tough, even shocking questions, but weaves them into a droll script that both chastises and sympathises with her characters…” ―Financial Times

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

Two retired nuclear scientists in an isolated cottage by the sea as the world around them crumbles. Then an old friend arrives with a frightening request.

“At our time of life we simply cannot deal with this shit.”

Lucy Kirkwood’s previous plays include Chimerica (winner of the Olivier Award for Best Play, the Evening Standard Award, the Critics’ Circle Best New Play Award and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize), small hours, NSFW, and it felt empty when the heart went at first but it is alright now.
