Children Poster


Closed November 20, 2011

Loosely based on a short story by John Cheever, this early work crackles with repressed feelings and witty repartee...

Why See Children?

In the summer of 1970, a wealthy family celebrates the Fourth of July in their ancestral summer home on an island off the coast of New England. When an estranged son unexpectedly arrives, traditions are questioned, secrets revealed and the course of the future changes for them all.
