A new and confronting play that recalls the Blair era and addresses its legacy.
Five characters in a London coffee shop reveal their thoughts and feelings directly to the audience, who learn first-hand how the Blair era impacted the lives of a generation.
Inspired by the legendary 1970s production Kennedy’s Children by Robert Patrick. Commissioned by The Cockpit.
Kennedy’s Children saw the American 60’s defined in large part by the death of heroes. The starting point for Blair’s Children was the idea that for many, Blair’s era marked the death of the traditional Left. It turned out there was much more to say. Each character in the play tells a deeply felt, personal and very different story.
