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. 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 this month.
The world is getting hotter, seas are rising, and one couple is thinking of having a baby. Both intimate and epic, Duncan Macmillan’s LUNGS 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, starting our own conversations about population growth and the global climate crisis.
LUNGS will be directed by Henry Nettleton and will feature Seattle-based performers Erika Vetter and Arjun Pande. LUNGS is designed by Lex Marcos (Scenic Design), Natalie Shih (Costume Design), and Aaron Tacy (Lighting Design). The production runs August 7 – 31, 2019 at 12th Avenue Arts’ Studio Theatre.
