“Duncan 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 who you don’t always like but start to feel you might love. …bravely written, startlingly structured…” —The Guardian (UK).
“…a bracingly dramatic walk through the thicket of couples communication…at once beguilingly modest and rewardingly polished. …a smart and stimulating eavesdrop on the modern vocabulary of intimate negotiation.” —The Washington Post.
“[LUNGS] manages to encapsulate within it almost every debate between nearly every young, urban, reasonably well-to-do couple. …LUNGS is a relationship analyzed to the nth degree, and occasionally a scarily recognizable one at that.…an original and striking new play…” —The Washingtonian.
“Macmillan dives into a joyously absurd hour of verbal fireworks…a treasure trove of incandescently neurotic monologues and one-liners…LUNGS doesn’t preach, but beneath all the madcap antics lies a subtle, intelligent environmental drama that quietly socks you in the guts.” —Time Out London.
“…a dazzling piece…At the core of this play is a beautifully crafted love story that is not only intensely personal but also poignantly universal. …LUNGS has heart. And it never misses a beat.” —The Toronto Star.
