Performed at the Old Vic in 2019, Duncan Macmillan's two-person play follows a couple as they wrestle with the idea of bringing a child into a world. With overpopulation, political unrest and melting ice caps, they toy with all possibilities in this socially-conscious drama.

In a review for, Will Longman said: "There's a pace to the text that is reflected in Warchus' direction. Played in the round, Foy and Smith spend much in perfect symmetry: when there is harmony in their relationship, they are perfect reflections of each other."

Lungs is available to watch from 27 - 29 January.
