Event description
'The Last Children' is a fantastical exploration of the very real climate crisis.

About this event

In the not-so-distant future, the oceans have flooded the prairies. An old man and an old woman – played by fourteen-year-olds Lazlo Paradis and Iris James – live together in a lighthouse, surrounded by a sea that was once Saskatchewan. They’ve been here one hundred years, ever since the flood washed away their homes and families. Twelve kids escaped the destruction in a homemade boat. A century later, only two remain. With nothing but themselves and their memories for company, these two old friends go about their routine and reflect on their remarkable lives, preparing for another great change on the horizon.

The Last Children is a fantastical exploration of the very real climate crisis. This performance at the Artesian mixes theatre and film; reality and fiction; past, present, and future. Created by an ensemble of Regina youth working with award-winning professional artists from across the prairies, the show is a deeply-felt, strangely-dreamed window into how it really feels to be a kid (or an adult) in these exceptionally anxious times.
