It's late, and nearly dark, as a child on the edge of the city is drawn into the crimes of the adult world. A group of friends are scared that they know too much and so they embark on a journey carrying a strange bundle. They are heading towards the port, but find themselves straying into a wilderness. The Children
is a remarkable work that dramatises the forces of destruction and creation in society. This show is not suitable for children under 12 years.
