Children of the Sun, written in 1905 when the playwright was briefly imprisoned in St. Petersburg during the Russian Revolution, conveys Gorky’s disappointment with the privileged classes and their inability to see beyond their own lives to realise what is happening in the world around them. A darkly comic play, it focuses on the household of scientist Protassov, who believes that the key to a better world lies in chemistry and who is so preoccupied with his own experiments that he is indifferent to the loss of his wife’s love, is oblivious to the persistent advances from an obsessed widow, scarcely notices that his sister is edging towards madness and is unaware of the personal danger that awaits him.
There are scenes of a violent nature and smoke effects in this production.
