Acclaimed playwright Lucy Kirkwood’s gripping new drama, The Children, arrives at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Downstairs, telling the story of two retired nuclear scientists watching the world self-destruct.

Sitting in an isolated cottage by the sea, the duo look on as the world around them crumbles.

Directed by James Macdonald, who recently directed Caryl Churchill’s Escaped Alone at the Sloane Square venue, The Children promises to be unmissable.
