The Children

Feb 28 – Mar 28, 2020

2018 Tony Award Nominee for Best Play! Following acclaimed runs in London and New York City, The Children is an astonishing and thrilling new play that questions the responsibility each generation has for the way it leaves the world. In the wake of a devastating environmental accident, Hazel and Robin, two retired physicists, are quietly living out their days in a cottage on the British coast. When an old colleague turns up with a shocking request, the three friends must come to terms with their shared culpability in this searing drama about responsibility and guilt, reparation and redemption.

RUN TIME: One hour and 45 minutes, with no intermission.

Given the evolving circumstances around COVID-19, and out of concern for the health and safety of our patrons, staff, and artists, SpeakEasy Stage Company has decided to cancel all remaining performances of our production of The Children. Boston Theatre Scene Ticketing Services will be reaching out to all current ticket holders of The Children to discuss their options, which include donating the cost of the tickets, exchanging tickets for a future SpeakEasy production, or getting a refund. Please know that the proceeds from all ticket donations will go to support SpeakEasy programs and artists, including those affected by the show’s cancellation.
