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.
Two retired nuclear scientists reside in an isolated cottage by the sea as the world around them crumbles. Together they are going to live forever on yogurt and yoga, until an old friend arrives with a frightening request.
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” premiered in London and New York and has garnered many awards in both the UK and the US. 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

Since Island Stage Left offers all its performances free of charge, we do not sell tickets or take reservations (unless you are a member of the Star Circle), although donations are always appreciated and are essential to the longevity of the company.
Seating is on a first come, first served basis and arriving at least 15 minutes early is always a good idea especially for the indoor shows.
In the summer, our outdoor performances have chairs set up, and also space for you to bring your own chairs if you prefer, plus space for blankets and sleeping bags close to the stage.
We request to bring warm clothes and blankets to keep you warm, as the temperature can drop 20 degrees on some summer nights.
