Tickets are available for Merely Players’ production of Lucy Kirkwood’s drama “The Children.”

Two retired nuclear scientists live in an isolated cottage by the sea. In the aftermath of a nuclear disaster, they are determined to preserve normalcy even as the world around them crumbles. When an old friend arrives with a frightening request, they must explore notions of accountability, guilt and mortality.

Maureen May, Jeannie Wheeldon and Stephen Bowers star in this eerily relevant drama. Performances will be held at 7 p.m. Friday (June 17) and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Merely Underground, 789 Tech Center Drive. Tickets cost $30 and are available online at www.merelyplayers.org.
