Directed by Phil Jordan with Gail Liston, Brian Plebanek and Kathy Stanley.

In Kirkwood's play, "The Children," 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 genuinely disturbing play: one not simply about nuclear power but about the heavy price we may pay in the future for the profligacy of the present.” —Guardian (UK).
