A dramatic trot through a thicket of conflicts, concerns and carbon footprints, a couple – identified only as M and W – debate whether having a child is a responsible thing to do when the planet is dying. It’s another thought provoking evening of theatre that addresses the big things in life, like our carbon footprint, and the small, a baby.

The characters in Duncan Macmillan’s Lungs are hip, unmarried and purposely unstylish and unremarkable until they start thinking and talking. Directed by Aaron Posner (BSC’s My Name Is Asher Lev), Lungs stars Brooke Bloom and Ryan King in their Barrington Stage debuts.
