ISL is thrilled to present Lucy Kirkwood’s extraordinary play “The Children”

Opening November 8th at the San Juan County Fairgrounds

True to their mission to present the best-written, most inspiring plays of our time, ISL has obtained the rights to this powerful new story.


The plot is tantalizingly unpredictable and often infused with laughter, but something else lurks beneath the surface. The story’s climax comes in the form of a shocking revelation late in the play. At its heart is the future of generations yet to come. The question that hangs in the air is, “What would you do?”


“The Children” has garnered many awards in both the UK and the US, premiering in London and New York. Prominent Seattle actresses Lori Larsen and Therese Diekhans join Daniel Mayes as the cast for this production.


The show runs:

Nov 8 through Dec 8


First week: Friday - Saturday at 7:30pm, Sunday at 4:00pm


Thereafter: Thursdays - Saturdays 7:30pm , Sundays 4:00pm


No show on Thanksgiving

"Superb as always"


"I saw the show Sunday evening. It was spectacular! Really professional, top quality acting from all.”


"After seeing the play last night I've decided that ‘A Winter's Tale’ is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays. I love the way we are dropped into the height of paranoia and supreme tragedy, and like a fairy tale we are lifted out and into a world where laughter reigns and beings make peace. Thank you for a most inspiring evening.”

“Just wanted to let you know how very much we enjoyed ‘A Winter's Tale.’”
