Duncan MacMillan’s play LUNGS has been described as 'off-kilter' and 'brutally honest' - and that's exactly what you get with this production. It races forward at a gallop as the pair on stage move through their relationship. There's an element of a runaway train to the pace, but it's a train I want to be on.

September 12, 2023

The word 'delela' means cheeky, rude, disrespectful or out of line - and I couldn't think of a more fitting title for this production and the subject matter. It's a brilliant piece of satire that points the finger and pokes fun at the world of vanity philanthropy.
