‘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’
The ice caps are melting, there's overpopulation, political unrest; everything's going to hell in a handcart – why on earth would someone bring a baby into this world? Duncan Macmillan’s Lungs follows the relationship between a man and a woman attempting to get pregnant while considering the environmental impacts of birth.
Glen Arbor Arts Center is hosting a second reading of Lungs, part of the P45 Reading Series including a brief post show unpacking of this important work with a talk back moderated by teacher, poet, trumpet player, Norman Wheeler.
