CRITIC'S CHOICE "The Children, a must-see attraction and an instant classic." -LA Times

What if a character from Medea wrested the children away from their mother’s murderous intent, accidentally transporting them to present-day Maine in the middle of a hurricane? The Children is a layered, Rubik’s Cube of a story, rich with comedy, passion and pain. Is that the modern-day sheriff or Jason, Medea’s husband? Will these children grow up to overcome their horrific childhoods? Wild theatricality, myth, and puppetry combine to tell an eerily moving story of survival and healing.

CRITIC'S PICK "a noteworthy production in every regard." - Back Stage

"The Theatre @ Boston Court's production of The Children is, in every sense of the word, truly an original production." -Splash Magazine

"The Children is a bumpy journey, but ultimately it's more evidence that Boston Court is the most consistently adventurous theater in LA." -KCRW

"The Children is like peeling an onion, layer by layer until you end up in tears wondering how the simple bulb could be so powerful and so strong."
