Theatre

pg17aBRAVO! Theatre is rehearsing for Lucy Kirkwood’s “The Children,” the type of play that BRAVO! does best: Topical, human, a play where instead of leaving humming a tune, you leave having a conversation after having also been entertained.

The play focuses on three friends who get together to reminisce, after they were part of a team of nuclear scientists at a nearby plant that recently had a meltdown. “The Children” is about ordinary people with ordinary relationships with highs and lows and occasional extraordinary events crashing in from the outside of their private worlds.

“The Children” is directed by Bernadette Jones, with a cast of Kathleen Carlson, Deborah Kloegmand and Paul Kloegman. Show dates January 27, 28, February 2, 3 and 4 at 4 p.m. and evening shows at 7 p.m. on January 29, 30 and February 1. Tickets, 400 pesos, are available at Kinda Bazar, Mia’s Boutique or This email address is being protected from spambots.
