Really Really Theatre Group Presents Duncan Macmillan's LUNGS
After a successful inaugural production of Much Better in 2017, Really Really Theatre Group returns to Seattle with a production of LUNGS by Duncan MacMillan at 12th Avenue Arts (1620 12th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122). In addition, Really Really Theatre Group is thrilled to announce a partnership with The Scratch, providing support for their Seattle Workshop Series which helps artists throughout the Pacific Northwest develop theatrical works-in-progress. Both programs will take place in August 2019.
The world is getting hotter, seas are rising, and one couple is thinking of having a baby. Both intimate and epic, Duncan MacMillan's follows the lifespan of one couple's conversation-from its first question to its final answer-as they consider what it truly means to bring one more person into the world. Both funny and searing, theatrical and personal, LUNGS asks us to examine the responsibilities we have to each other, ourselves, and our environment. Really Really Theatre Group is excited to share this exhilarating piece with Seattle audiences and to incite conversation about these important global issues. Casting and ticketing info to be announced in the coming months. LUNGS will be directed by Henry Nettleton and runs August 7 - 31, 2019. For more information, visit really-really.org/lungs.
