Charged with intensity, The Children is an atomic drama about the responsibility of generations to those that follow.

Robin and Hazel, two nuclear scientists, live a quiet existence in their isolated cottage on the coast.

Yes, electricity is rationed. Yes, radiation fills the air. Yes, it’s safer to leave the house in a hazmat suit.

But they are determined to enjoy the retirement they worked so hard for.

That is, until old friend and colleague Rose arrives, bringing with her a past Robin and Hazel had left behind, and a frightening challenge for their future.

“A richly suggestive and beautifully written piece of work.” The Independent
