Lungs received its world premiere in 2011 at the Studio Theatre in Washington D.C. and was met with acclaimed reviews. It would later have successful productions at the Crucible Studio in London, the Tarragon Theatre in Toronto, the New Repertory Theatre in Boston, the Melbourne Theatre Company in Australia and Sonorous Road Theatre in Raleigh, North Carolina.
After the larger-scale production of The Christians in January 2017, the B3 Series is producing a more intimate play in Duncan Macmillan’s Lungs. Lungs asks important questions about today’s society and does so in a rather personal manner: when is the right time to have a child? With the uncertainty of global politics and everyday safety, is it wise to bring a new person into the world?
Playwright Duncan Macmillan was facing 30, considering parenthood, and deeply concerned with the state of the environment when he wrote Lungs. Those issues find their way into Lungs and align with the B3 Series’ mission of exploring modern matters on stage.
