The Children runs May 9 – 19 at The Bus Stop Theatre

Keep Good (Theatre) Company is proud to produce the Atlantic Canadian premiere of Lucy Kirkwood’s The Children.


Based on stories surrounding the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, The Children takes place after a nuclear meltdown in the UK, which has left a large portion of the country uninhabitable. In an isolated cottage by the sea, Hazel and Robin, two retired nuclear scientists, try to live out the rest of their days in relative peace until Rose, an old friend and former colleague, arrives and tries to convince them to come back to work. Shocked by the request, Hazel refuses, believing her retirement was well earned.  


Each performance also features an opening act, typically beginning one hour before the performance. The full schedule of opening acts will be available in April.

8 pm Thursday May 9 (Preview)
8 pm Friday May 10 (Opening Night)
