On Sunday 24th March at 20:30 GMT our co-production with Sheffield Theatres of Duncan Macmillan's LUNGS will transfer to BBC Radio 3.
The station will broadcast a studio recording of Richard Wilson’s production, starring Alistair Cope and Kate O’Flynn, first seen at Sheffield Theatres in our Roundabout Auditorium in 2011, and again last year at Shoreditch Town Hall.
I could fly to New York and back every day for seven years and still not leave a carbon footprint as big as if I have a child. Ten thousand tonnes of CO2. That’s the weight of the Eiffel Tower. I’d be giving birth to the Eiffel Tower.
In a time of global anxiety, terrorism, erratic weather and political unrest, a young couple want a child but are running out of time. If they over think it, they'll never do it. But if they rush, it could be a disaster.
They want to have a child for the right reasons. Except, what exactly are the right reasons? And what will be the first to destruct - the planet or the relationship?
Part of The Roundabout Season
The first performance of Lungs took place on 5 October 2011 at the Crucible Studio Theatre, Sheffield.
