Book tickets for Children of the Sun

We have special offers available on tickets for Children of the Sun.

Children of the SunMaxim Gorky's 1905 play is staged at the National Theatre with Howard Davies directing. Controversial at the time, Children of the Sun refers to the privileged elite of Russia and how they are unaware of the cholera epidemic that is currently developing. The message is epitomised by the main character Protassoff who, despite being noble and idealistic, is completely unaware of the events that unfold around him. He doesn't see the love Melanya holds for him, is ignorant to the confused affection that his wife has for his best friend and is dangerously oblivious to the armed mob that are on their way to attack him. Buy tickets for Children of the Sun at the National Theatre.

About National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre

The Lyttelton is one of three theatres which make up the National Theatre. It was built in a proscenium style, but has thoroughly modern sightlines and acoustics. There really is no bad seat here as there are no circle rails or view-blocking pillars. More about National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre
