Interior Set

Robin and Linda are 21-year-old twins who were given up for adoption shortly after birth. Having traced their biological mother, Helena, they lure her to an abandoned house on the pretext that she will be meeting Michael, her former lover. Here the twins reveal their identity to Helena, taunting her with sinister re-enactments of her past. Eventually she is forced to confess the true circumstances of her children’s birth.

With echoes of the myth of Romulus and Remus, Children of the Wolf is a dark, engrossing play with an intensely shocking twist.

A clever, intuitive, psychological thriller with more than the usual dose of social conscience. - Guardian

The audience attended to this modern horror tale as if held by the Ancient Mariner’s skinny hand and glittering eye. - John Barber, Daily Telegraph
