Lungs by Duncan Macmillan

21 Jun - 24 Jul 2021 | KC Arts Centre - Home of SRT


They are an everyday couple in a fairly stable relationship. Out of the blue, he pops the question about having a baby. What follows is an emotional rollercoaster ride that is LUNGS, an intensely intimate, intricate and funny play about what it means to be a couple confronted by a world of uncertainty. They grapple with making responsible choices in the face of rising social inequity, environmental disaster and political unrest. Watch what happens when life takes over and their principles are pushed aside.

Written by critically acclaimed British playwright Duncan Macmillan and directed by Daniel Jenkins, LUNGS is a fast-paced love story which will take your breath away.

Featuring Oon Shu An and Joshua Lim.

“The most beautiful, quietly shattering play of the year” – Sunday Express

“Brutally honest, funny, edgy and current.” – The Guardian 

Lungs is a play about love, life, and the uncertain world in which we live at the moment; a play that provokes us to question our life decisions and the way we live our lives.” – Daniel Jenkins, Director
