#LungsMNL opens on Sept. 22

With climate change worsening, people growing more complacent about their carbon footprint, and the death of the planet becoming ever more imminent, one couple considers the unthinkable — having a baby.

This September, The Sandbox Collective and 9 Works Theatrical bring you the Philippine premiere of Duncan Macmillan’s Lungs, a two-person, one-act play about parenthood, making conscious ecological decisions, and the complications that come with trying to be good people. Over the course of ninety breathless minutes, one couple engages with questions about babies, love, sex, betrayal, and change in one unbroken conversation. Written to be performed devoid of props, costume changes, or scene transitions, Macmillan’s “carbon-neutral” piece reflects the anxieties of potentially having children in an increasingly disastrous world.
