A couple are deciding their future. Thirty-something, educated and thoughtful, they want to have a child for the right reasons. But in a time of overpopulation, erratic weather and political unrest, what exactly are the right reasons?  A play about the different types of love we feel in a lifetime.

Lungs contains adult language. Lungs Content Warning: This is a play about a couple trying to have (or trying to have a conversation about having) a child. Therefore, this play deals with some of the difficult realities that come with the conception of a child. Fertility struggles are far more common than we would like to believe, and, at points, this play addresses some of the more heartbreaking aspects. Resource:
