Lungs MNL at Circuit Makati

A grippng, barebones stage play comes to Circuit Makati’s Power Mac Center Spotlight this September and October. And yes, folks, theatre buff or not, best you get your tickets now!

9 Works Theatrical, in collaboration with Sandbox Collective, brings you Lungs— a straight play without props, costume changes, scene transitions, and intermission, and with only two actors on stage.

Lungs is a play written by British playwright Duncan Macmillan, an Olivier Award-nominated writer and director, who best known for the stage adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984, Every Brilliant Thing, and People, Places, and Things.

It stars Sab Jose, who just came from the hit musical Eto Na! Musikal nAPO! and Jake Cuenca in his much-awaited theatrical debut.

Originally produced in 2011, Lungs is a tale of two lovers, M and W, who are trying to conceive a baby amidst a world that is crumbling, no small thanks to climate change. Indeed, the question begs some thought: Is it worth it to have a child in this day and age? If the planet is slowly dying, would you still want to bring a child to the world? The play lets us look into how a 30-something couple talks about this life-changing decision.
