"Lucy Kirkwood's The Children focuses on the aftermath of a nuclear disaster and how it personally impacts three individuals. It's a smartly written and intriguing play and Theatre Artists Studio is presenting the local premiere of the drama in a chilling production with a gifted trio of actors and solid direction...Kirkwood's dialogue is sharp and her pacing exceptional as she slowly reveals information about each of these complex characters...There is also an eerie uncertainty that constantly looms overhead, from the first scene when the lights come up to reveal Rose with a large spot of blood on her face to the unsettling conclusion, that will keep you guessing until the end....Judy Rollings' direction achieves strong and clear performances from her cast that are natural and infused with emotion...a smart, thought-provoking play about the need for individuals to accept their responsibilities and to make hard decisions. It's well worth seeing and may haunt you for hours or even days after seeing it."
