Two retired nuclear scientists reside in an isolated cottage by the sea as the world around them crumbles. Together they are going to live forever on yogurt and yoga, until an old friend arrives with a frightening request. The Children raises profound questions about whether having children sharpens or diminishes one's sense of social responsibility. A Tony Award nominee for Best Play in 2018, this genuinely haunting play asks us: What do we owe ourselves, and what do we owe the younger generations?
