The Children by Lucy Kirkwood

A brilliant drama with electric undercurrents

Playwright Lucy Kirkwood wowed Sydney Theatre Company audiences with the globe-trotting thriller Chimerica in 2017. Now, with The Children, she’s been heralded as “the most rewarding dramatist of her generation” (The Independent, UK).

After decades of hard work and raising a family, Hazel and her husband Robin have retired to a cottage by the sea. It’s the idyllic life they always wanted – but there’s a catch.

Not far away, the nuclear power plant they used to work at has been torn apart by a natural disaster. And into their quiet life comes an old friend with a frightening proposition. The fallout will be unpredictable.
