This Thought-Provoking Drama Is More Prevalent Than Ever

The world is getting hotter, there is unrest overseas—and one couple is thinking about having a child. Lungs is a smart and funny drama that follows a couple through the surprising lifecycle of their relationship as they grapple with questions of family and change, hope, betrayal, happenstance, and the terrible pain that you can only cause the people you love.

In a time of global anxiety, terrorism, erratic weather, and political unrest, a young couple wants to have a child but are running out of time. If they over think it, they'll never do it. But if they rush, it could be a disaster. Lungs is a truly superior production of a thoughtful, rambling work that is difficult to completely embrace but is impossible to forget.

"[Lungs is a] bracingly dramatic walk through the thicket of couples’ communication… at once beguilingly modest and rewardingly polished. … A smart and stimulating eavesdrop on the modern vocabulary of intimate negotiation.” —The Washington Post

Duncan Macmillan is an award-winning writer and theatre director whose plays include Lungs, Every Brilliant Thing and 2071 (all published by Oberon Books). His play People, Places and Things transferred from the National Theatre to the West End in 2016 and received a 2018 Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Play.
