Children is one of the earliest plays by A.R. Gurney (The Cocktail Hour, The Dining Room). Set in 1970, a wealthy family gathers to celebrate the Fourth of July in their summer home on an island off the New England coast. With the return of an estranged and mysterious brother secrets are revealed, loyalties tested, and the shifting tides of generations challenge everyone's assumptions about their place in the family. Loosely based on John Cheever's short story "Goodbye, My Brother," Children probes the heart of one family to discover wider truths about the American social landscape.
