LUNGS (Silverthorne Theater Benefit)

Wed · October 25, 2017

7:00 pm

$25

Written by Duncan Macmillan
Featuring Stephanie Carlson and Lindel Hart
Directed by Ellen Kaplan

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 their relationship as they grapple with questions of family and change, hope, betrayal, happenstance, and the pain that you can only cause the people you love.

"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..." —The Guardian

This one-time performance will benefit STC's upcoming event, Your Voice, Poet, a free performance/discussion featuring the play by Haitian playwright Jean Dany Joachim, winner of STC's Playwrights of Color competition.
