See a young couple wrestle with family planning decisions in Lungs

Following the successful runs of Tuesdays with Morrie and The Sound Inside, local theatre company Singapore Repertory Theatre is set to bring yet another compelling two-hander to our shores.

Written by critically acclaimed British playwright Duncan Macmillan, Lungs will officially make its local premiere on Jun 19 at KC Arts Centre – Home of SRT.

Perhaps best known for its 2019 revival that starred The Crown cast members Matt Smith and Claire Foy, Lungs follows the story of a couple that wrestles with the idea of bringing a child into an already overpopulated world facing environmental challenges.

The pair also considers socio-political issues and their responsibility in making mature decisions.


Directed by theatre veteran Daniel Jenkins, the local staging will star Joshua Lim and Oon Shu Ann as M and W respectively.

With a plot many young Singaporean couples can probably relate to, Lungs is not to be missed.

Says Jenkins, “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.”
