The Children has been an enormous hit on London, New York, Melbourne and Sydney stages. Playwright Lucy Kirkwood, one of the world’s most exciting young playwrights, offers this beautifully written play which tackles timely themes.
Three of New Zealand’s most esteemed actors, Catherine Downes, Carmel McGlone and Peter Hambleton star in this gripping new drama that beautifully balances the realities of our times with intrigue and humour.
Hazel and Robin are trying to go about their life of yoga and farming as though nothing has changed. But everything shifts when an old friend, Rose, knocks on their door. Something doesn’t feel right… the fallout will be unpredictable.
The Children introduces us to this trio of characters in a witty and touching story that rumbles with big questions about how we live. What responsibility do we have for this planet? What do we want to leave behind for our children?
Tony Award nomination Best New Play.
