Fall 2019 - The Children
ISL is thrilled to present Lucy Kirkwood’s extraordinary play “The Children”, opening November 8 at the San Juan County Fairgrounds. True to their mission to present the best-written, most inspiring plays of our time, they’ve 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 the UK and the US. Prominent Seattle actresses Lori Larsen and Therese Diekhans join Daniel Mayes as the cast for ISL’s fall play “The Children,” which runs:

First week: Friday - Saturday at 7:30pm, Sunday at 4:00pm
Thereafter: Thursdays - Saturdays 7:30pm , Sundays 4:00pm
No show on November 28 (Thanksgiving)
