Lungs by Duncan MacMilian
Directed and Produced by Sarah Bielman
Thursday, May 5 @ 6pm at The Cathedral Barns
Presented in partnership with The Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities
The world is getting hotter, there’s unrest overseas—the seas themselves aren’t very calm—and one couple is thinking about having a child. Lungs is a smart and funny drama that follows a couple through the surprising lifecycle of their relationship, as they grapple with questions of family and change, hope, betrayal, happenstance, and the terrible pain that you can only cause the people you love.
Duncan Macmillan’s Lungs follows the relationship between a man and a woman attempting to get pregnant while considering the environmental impacts of birth. P45 is partnering with the Groundwork Center to hold a conversation around how climate change has affected the greater Traverse City area, and how our personal lives are affected by environmental changes.
“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…bravely written, startlingly structured…” —Guardian (UK).
Play readings will be directed and produced by members of P45's 2022 Resident Company: Sarah Bielman, Katie Clark, Noah Durham Fried, Sara Hartley, Alexandra Herryman, Jeremy Hogue, Micah Mabey, and Kristen Stewart
