What's On

Lungs
 

MTC favourites Kate Atkinson (The Waiting Room) and Bert LaBonté (The Mountaintop) star in the Australian premiere of Lungs, a funny, tender and profound two-hander by British writer Duncan Macmillan, directed by Clare Watson.

In IKEA – of all places – a man tentatively suggests to his partner that perhaps they should start a family, and whoosh – out pour all her pent up anxieties for the future. Proving that parenthood is not for the faint-hearted, Duncan Macmillan’s charmingly honest and fascinating romance spans one long, funny conversation continued over several years of a relationship.

In these times of climate change and political upheaval, Lungs explores the anxieties faced by our generation to ask the question ‘when is the right time to bring a baby into the world?’
