About this show

On a summer evening in an isolated seaside cottage in the East of England, a pair of retired nuclear scientists are startled by a visit from a former colleague. As some crackers and wine are trotted out, so are various old jealousies, leading to the true reason for Rose's sudden reappearance: the revelation of a chilling and dangerous plan.

Following sold out runs in London and New York, the brave, humane, and beautifully written play The Children makes its way to Steppenwolf and confronts the responsibility each generation must face for the way it leaves the world.
