With director Michael Scholar Jr. at the helm, Mitch and Murray Productions returns with another dynamite play, award-winning playwright Duncan Macmillan’s Lungs.

The Story: In a time of global anxiety, erratic weather, and political unrest, one couple (played by real-life couple Aaron Craven and Kate Craven) wants to have a child but are running out of time. LUNGS is a smart, funny and timely drama that follows a couple through the surprising lifecycle of their relationship, as they grapple with questions of family and change, hope, betrayal, happenstance, and the terrible pain that you can only cause the people you love.

With 14 Jessie Richardson Award nominations to its name, Mitch and Murray Productions is a theatre company that lives on the edge, with a focus on contemporary, provocative character-driven storytelling. Recent works include the Vancouver premieres of Body Awareness by Annie Baker, Sex With Strangers by Laura Eason and Smart People by Lydia R. Diamond.

With COVID restrictions in mind, Mitch and Murray Productions offers up an elegant two-hander with a real-life couple unrestricted in performance possibilities.  The play will be staged in the round for small audiences with plenty of space between seats as well as staggered admission to the space. If you’ve missed live theatre and want to return to an exciting safe theatrical space, Lungs may be the show for you!

Runs November 13-22 at 8 pm with 1 pm matinees November 15, 18 & 22. Preview performance November 12 at 8 pm.
