Lungs - at Shoreditch Town Hall

“In a time of global anxiety, terrorism, erratic weather and political unrest, a young couple want a child. If they over think it, they'll never do it. But if they rush, it could be a disaster.

’I could fly to New York and back every day for seven years and still not leave a carbon footprint as big as if I have a child. Ten thousand tonnes of CO2. That's the weight of the Eiffel Tower. I'd be giving birth to the Eiffel Tower.’

“What will be the first to destruct – the planet or the relationship?

“Part of The Roundabout Season – three extraordinary new plays by three rising star playwrights, performed by a single ensemble of actors in a thrilling 360 degree setting.” – from the National Theatre website

“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 through two flawed, but deeply human, people who you don't always like but start to feel you might love.” – from the Guardian review

Tickets are available from the National Theatre website. As seating is unallocated, please buy your own ticket/s.

If you’d like to stay on for dinner or drinks after the performance, please leave a comment below, or make a note in your RSVP – or e-mail Millie, who’s organising the event. Depending on numbers we’ll make arrangements.

    The two hander was excellent. It lasted 100 minutes and was fast paced and must of been terribly hard work for the actors, I felt exhausted by just watching it. Both of the actors played their parts very well, the female had a lot more to say and thus was more animated whilst the male had to do a lot of acting without speaking or even moving much - both did very well.
    It worked for me and rang a hell of a lot of bells - I thought it was just my relationships that were like that
