Runtime: 1 Hour 30 Minutes


Synopsis

LUNGS
BY DUNCAN MACMILLAN
OCTOBER 17-27, 2019
BLACK BOX SERIES PERFORMANED IN THE STONZEK THEATRE – 709 LAKE AVE
The world is getting hotter, there’s unrest overseas—the seas themselves aren’t very calm—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.
“Duncan Macmillan’s distinctive, off-kilter love story is brutally honest, funny, edgy and current. It gives voice to a generation for whom uncertainty is a way of life through two flawed, but deeply human, people who you don’t always like but start to feel you might love…bravely written, startlingly structured…” —The Guardian (UK).
“…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.” —Washington Post.
“… a dazzling piece…At the core of this play is a beautifully crafted love story that is not only intensely personal but also poignantly universal. …LUNGS has heart. And it never misses a beat.” —The Toronto Star.
