THE CHILDREN is a Tony Award nominated, apocalyptic blast that will have you on the edge of your seat. It’s gripping and darkly funny, and a far-reaching, unsettling play about legacy, survival and responsibility.
Jarrott Productions is pleased to announce the final production of its 4th season: Lucy Kirkwood’s THE CHILDREN. The play premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2016, and moved to Broadway in late 2017. It received two 2018 Tony Award nominations, including Best Play. In the play, two retired nuclear scientists are living in an isolated cottage by the sea as the world around them crumbles when an old friend arrives with a frightening request. It is a gripping and darkly funny and yet far-reaching unsettling play about legacy, survival and responsibility.
Starring in this production are: Katherine Schroeder; Pamela Francesca Christian; and David R. Jarrott. THE CHILDREN is directed by Carlo Lorenzo Garcia, a recent transplant to Austin from Chicago where he served as the Producing Director for the Mary-Arrchie Theatre from 2008-2016. The rest of the Creative Team includes: Michael Krauss, Co-Scene Designer; Alison Lewis, Lighting Designer; Talena Martinez, Costume Designer; Craig Brock, Sound Designer; Zac Crofford, Technical Director; Lisa Goering, Production Manager; Morgan Brochu, Production Stage Manager; Natalie Garcia, Assistant Director and Marketing Director; and Denise Hodgson and Zoe Riemer, House Managers.
