Why See Lungs?

PlaysStars on Stage

Starring Claire Foy and Matt Smith

The Crown's inimitable duo Claire Foy and Matt Smith make their Old Vic debuts in Duncan Macmillan's Lungs. An emotional rollercoaster, Lungs is a smart-whip comedy that explores one married couple's wrestling between the want for a child and the world's impending environmental doom.

A quirky modern love-story, Lungs is a far cry from Macmillan's 1984. Exploring 21st-century issues for 21st-century people, this two-hander dives into what makes us good people and the humanly desires that pull at our good intentions.

Matthew Warchus directs the piece which sees Foy and Smith reunite, bringing their tangible chemistry from Netflix's BAFTA-nominated series The Crown to you!
