THE CHILDREN by Lucy Kirkwood

Directed by Susan V Booth

“A richly suggestive and beautifully written piece of work” — The Independent (London)

In their remote cottage on the British coast, a long-married pair of retired nuclear physicists live a modest life in the aftermath of a natural disaster, giving scrupulous care to energy rationing, their garden, and their yoga practice. When former colleague Rose reappears after 38 years, her presence upends the couple’s equilibrium and trust. As the fallout from long-ago decisions comes hurtling into view, Rose unveils a proposal that threatens more than their marriage. A hit in London and New York, Lucy Kirkwood’s latest is a taut thriller about responsibility and reparation—what one generation owes the next.
