Opening at the Old Vic later this year, Claire Foy and Matt Smith will star in Lungs, a political play looking at what it means to raise a child while being environmentally conscious of the surroundings. In a distinctive love story that resonates with the current climate, Lungs looks at the different types of love we feel in a lifetime and how relationships change. So, if you’re looking to see a gritty play while seeing television stars on stage, you’ll want to book tickets for Lungs.

“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”. As a couple consider the environmental weight of giving birth in modern day society, Lungs examines what it means to raise a child. With political unrest, overpopulation and melting ice caps, should people have a baby in today’s society?

Lungs will feature some of television’s biggest names, starring The Crown’s Claire Foy and Matt Smith. However, audiences can also see TV stars at Present Laughter starring Andrew Scott or The Man in the White Suit starring Stephen Mangan. But with a limited engagement and actors reuniting on stage, you’ll want to book your tickets for Lungs now.
