The Children

The Children

Gate Theatre, Thursday 28th February - Saturday 23rd March 2019

Three retired nuclear scientists. A crumbling cottage by the sea. The fallout from life, love and nuclear power stations.

As the world grapples with the aftermath of a catastrophe at a nuclear power station, two retired nuclear engineers are enjoying a quiet life in their remote cottage by the sea. The arrival of an old friend, however, forces them to face the crumbling world outside and interrogate their responsibility towards future generations. Lucy Kirkwood's provocative and darkly funny play, The Children, explores ageing, personal responsibility, and the effects of climate change.

Winner of Best Play at the 2018 Writers' Guild Awards (UK) and nominated for Best Play at the Tony Awards 2018.

The Cripple of Inishmaan

Gaiety Theatre

Martin McDonagh's work is known and loved by both theatre and film audiences alike. The Cripple of Inishmaan is set on the small Aran Islands community of Inishmaan (Inis Meáin), off the Western Coast of Ireland in 1934, where the inhabitants are excited to learn of a Hollywood film crew's arrival in neighbouring Inishmore (Inis Mór) to make a documentary about life on the islands. 'Cripple' Billy Claven, eager to escape the gossip, poverty and boredom of Inishmaan, vies for a part in the film and to everyone's surprise, the orphan and outcast gets his chance… or so some believe.
