Stage West Theatre presents Lungs
The world is getting hotter, there’s unrest overseas - actually, the seas themselves aren’t very calm either - and in an IKEA, a man suggests to his partner that they should have a child. What if it grows up to solve the world’s problems? What if it becomes a mass murderer? What about its carbon footprint? They leave with nothing they went in for, but come out with a full set of self-assembly dilemmas that they spend a life cycle trying to construct. They want to have a child for the right reasons. But what are the right reasons?
This play by Duncan Macmillan is making its regional premiere at Stage West Theatre.
