What’s our responsibility to the future?
Chernobyl. Fukushima. Three Mile Island. Names all loaded with dread to this day. But what if the fallout from any one of those incidents had been much, much worse? Hazel and Robin are two retired nuclear scientists living in a cottage on the English coast, still haunted by a disaster at the power station where they used to work, and still living in fear of each click of the Geiger counter. Clutching at normality, they farm, or do yoga, or do their best to keep in touch with the world at large, which has descended into chaos after the apocalypse at the reactor. When an old colleague turns up at their door, the couple are forced to confront an uncomfortable truth. The Children is a stunning, intense, slow-burning drama by one of the UK’s hottest young playwrights.
Playwright Lucy Kirkwood was inspired to write the play by the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan.
