Matthew Dunster

Oberon Books

"Highly entertaining" –What’s on Stage

“A sharp new play…It’s in the same sort of area as Miller’s All My Sons, examining the ways we ease our consciences…Dunster’s depiction of a myopic society fiddling while flares burn is, as it should be, disturbing.” –Financial Times

"Children’s Children has electrifying moments…wit, intelligence and a rare sense of scope…It's excitingly alive" –The Times


Michael and Gordon have been best friends since acting college. Now, 20 years later, Michael is Mr. Saturday Night TV but failing actor Gordon is struggling with enormous debts. Meanwhile Gordon’s daughter Effie couldn’t care less about her Dad’s problems – she is far more interested in the film that her cool boyfriend is making and in setting up an ecologically sound clothing label. When Gordon asks Michael to lend him a large sum of money it sets in motion a series of events that reveal irreparable cracks in the characters’ relationships. Matthew Dunster’s often hilarious new play brings to life a set of strikingly contemporary individuals.


Matthew Dunster was born in Oldham and is an actor, playwright and director. He lives in London and is an Associate Director of Shakespeare's Globe.
