In a time of global anxiety and political unrest, a young couple contemplates having a child. If they overthink it, they'll never do it. But if they rush, it could be a disaster. This hilarious and touching examination of one couple's decision by up and coming British playwright Duncan Macmillan begs the question, what will be the first to destruct the planet or the relationship?

"Smart and stimulating!" Washington Post

"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 bravely written, startlingly structured" -The Guardian

Directed by Steve Kidd (resident actor at the Sandra Feinstein Gamm Theatre) and featuring Wilbury Group actor Jed Hancock- Brainerd (King Berenger in Exit the King at The Wilbury Group) and newcomer Rachel Dulude, the RI premiere of LUNGS promises to be among the most intimate and daring new plays of Rhode Island's Fall theatre season.

LUNGS is presented by The Wilbury Group through special arrangement with Mr. Macmillan and the Gersh Agency, New York, NY
