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.”
