Some description

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.

Studio Lab presents stripped-down productions of world premiere plays, giving playwrights in residence the ability to work in an environment of collaboration and discovery. 


Studio Theatre embarks on an exciting new path with Lungs…an auspicious start to the company’s ambitions as midwife to original plays.

The performances are fantastic!  With material and performances this rich, two characters talking to one another is all you need.

Bravura acting…their timing is impeccable. It’s extraordinary to watch…90 straight minutes of pure dialogue and pacing and moving and moving us.
