Spring 1945. Evacuated five years earlier to Canada, seventeen-year-old Peter returns to London. His parents are now dead and his three sisters eagerly await his arrival. Set against the chaotic aftermath of the Second World War, Richard Nelson's new play intimately explores the emotional and sexual fragility of family relationships. Goodnight Children Everywhere premiered at the Royal Shakespeare Company's Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon, in December 1997.
