Island Stage Left: The Children
True to ISL’s ongoing mission to produce the best-written, most inspiring plays of our times – ones that move us – not just to laughter, although often infused with it, but with reconsidered viewpoints, ones that leave us with new understandings and empathy for those around us, we are thrilled to present Lucy Kirkwood’s brilliant play, “The Children”.
Humour, love, friendship, humanity, age, courage, children and what their future may hold – this wonderful play is as tantalizingly hard to define as life itself.
Awarded the Critics’ Circle, Evening Standard and Olivier Awards for Best New Play and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for best play in the English language by a female playwright, Lucy Kirkwood has also won the “Most Promising Playwright” Award in the UK. Her work has been performed at the Royal Court, the West End and on Broadway.
See it Thursdays through Sundays, November 8 through December 8th at the Marie Boe Building at the SJC Fairgrounds. Check out www.islandstageleft.org for more information and show times.
