LUNGS: A Black Box Series Production by Duncan MacMillan
Director – Daniel Eilola
Stage Manager – Olga Kark
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.
