Theatre: The Children at the Gate Theatre, Sign Language Interpreted Performance

21 Mar 2019 (Past)

Gate Theatre

Three retired nuclear scientists. A crumbling cottage by the sea. The fallout from life, love and nuclear power stations.

As the world grapples with the aftermath of a catastrophe at a nuclear power station, two retired nuclear engineers are enjoying a quiet life in their remote cottage by the sea. The arrival of an old friend, however, forces them to face the crumbling world outside and interrogate their responsibility towards future generations. Lucy Kirkwood’s provocative and darkly funny play, The Children, explores ageing, personal responsibility, and the effects of climate change.

Sign Language Interpreted Performance: Thursday 21 st March, 7.30pm
Amanda Coogan returns to the Gate as the Irish Sign Language Interpreter for the show.
