by Duncan Macmillan

Friday, May 19 at 7:00 pm

Ann Arbor District Library Westgate Branch; West Side Room, 2503 Jackson Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48103

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 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. …bravely written, startlingly structured…” -The Guardian (UK)

Grab a hot or cold beverage at Sweetwaters, come to the Westgate Branch meeting room and enjoy an evening of theater – followed by a discussion with Kickshaw actors and directors.

Featuring: Dani Cochrane* and Bryan Lark. Directed by Lynn Lammers. (*member, Actors' Equity Association)
