The Children by Lucy Kirkwood


Rewarding Times have teamed up with The Gate Theatre to offer you the chance to see The Children by Lucy Kirkwood. For €25 you will receive one premium ticket to the performance and one complimentary programme signed by the full cast.

Three retired nuclear scientists. A crumbling cottage by the sea. The fallout from life, love and nuclear power stations.

As the world grapples with the aftermath of a catastrophe at a nuclear power station, two retired nuclear engineers are enjoying a quiet life in their remote cottage by the sea. The arrival of an old friend, however, forces them to face the crumbling world outside and interrogate their responsibility towards future generations. Lucy Kirkwood’s provocative and darkly funny play, The Children, explores ageing, personal responsibility, and the effects of climate change.

Winner of Best Play at the 2018 Writers’ Guild Awards (UK) and nominated for Best Play at the Tony Awards 2018, The Children is part of the Gate’s Spring Season of international new work, centred on the theme of Love and Courage. It is presented SIDE by SIDE with Beginning by David Eldridge.
